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.

The 1.4 million square-foot building will include 781 condominium units ranging from studios to three bedrooms.

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.
