99 Hudson is a 79-story condominium in Jersey City, New Jersey. It is the tallest building in Jersey City and the state of New Jersey, and the 45th tallest building in the United States. It is also the tallest residential building in the United States outside of Manhattan and Chicago. Developed by China Overseas America (the U.S. arm of the Hong Kong-based company COHL), 99 Hudson is the first residential project in the U.S. for the firm. The 1.4 million square-foot building will include 781 condominium units ranging from studios to three bedrooms.

History

Plans for the development were first released in March 2014. Originally, the plans called for twin towers, but after the land changed hands, the plans were changed to a single, 950 feet (290 m) tower. The building was approved in early 2015 by the city.

The building was approved by the FAA in early 2016; buildings taller than 899 feet (274 m) in Jersey City must seek FAA approval. Ground was broken on January 29, 2016. The building topped-out in September 2018.

Architectural details

The building is a 79-story, 900 ft (274 m) tall residential skyscraper. The building takes up an entire city block in downtown. It has a porte-cochere entrance, where the lobby is located, as well as the entrance to the parking garage. The building has a limestone and glass facade, echoing to Art Deco Style. The building contains three open plazas, and a residential rooftop garden above an eight-story podium. Along the sidewalk, there are storefronts with large windows between limestone piers. At night, lighting features on the piers will light up.

Usage

The building will be residential, and will include 781 condominiums. The penthouse, located on the 75th floor, costs $4.05 million. There is 65,000 sq ft of indoor and outdoor amenities. This includes a fitness center, yoga studio, Pilates studio, and an entertainment game center which includes card rooms, pool, Foosball tables, a golf simulator, a children's playroom, a demonstration kitchen, work cafe, and a screening room with a bar.
