Since the turn of the millennium, New Jersey has been giving New Yorkers something to look at besides a giant clock and the shipping cranes of our pilfered maritime industries. In just two decades, Jersey City has birthed a full-fledged skyline of 15 towers more than 500 feet tall with seven more on the way. According to CTBUH’s Skyscraper Center, Jersey City is now ranked as the #15 skyline in the country — quite an accomplishment for a city of just 262,000 residents. The boom continues, and its skyline will become even more postcard-worthy with the development of 99 Hudson Street, a pinnacling condominium tower that will become the tallest building in the city and state.
The 79-story, 889-foot tall structure is being developed by China Overseas America, Inc. (COA) and will be the company’s first residential venture in the U.S. The tower is now rapidly rising from a full-block site near the Hudson River waterfront and a block south from PATH’s Exchange Place Station. Upon completion in 2019, the building will be the 15th tallest in the country outside of New York and Chicago. Its sizeable 1.5 million square feet of space will accommodate 781 condominium units, 15,000 square feet of retail space and 14,000 square feet of public space.

The building will also be Jersey City’s first large-scale condo project in more than five years and sales are anticipated to launch in early 2018. The development team informed us that the registration site is now live allowing prospective buyers to stay informed on its studio to three bedroom homes. Just about every floor will provide iconic views of the Manhattan skyline and with the building's positioning one block in from the waterfront, south-facing exposures will have unobstructed views past the state’s current tallest building towards the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the harbor.
The well-established office of Perkins Eastman are the architects of 99 Hudson and molded a symmetrical shaft pinstriped in limestone that echoes the majestic Art Deco skyscrapers across the river. At the project’s groundbreaking last January, Perkins Eastman principal Ming Wu says, “For decades now, people on the west side of the Hudson have marveled at Manhattan’s skyline, but today Jersey City is developing its own dynamic city, along with a world-class skyline. To play a part in this transformation is quite an honor.”
