Construction has reached the fifth floor on the 79-story, 781-unit mixed-use tower under development at 99 Hudson Street, located between Grand and York streets in the Exchange Place section of downtown Jersey City. Progress on the 900-foot-tall tower, which is set to be New Jersey’s tallest building upon completion, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums.
The 1.5 million square-foot structure will contain 781 condominium units, in addition to 15,000 square feet of retail space and 14,000 square feet of public space. There will also be a 609-car parking garage incorporated into the base.
The U.S. branch of Hong Kong-based China Overseas Holdings Limited, a subsidiary of the state-owned, Beijing-based China State Construction Engineering Corporation, is the developer. Perkins Eastman is responsible for the architecture. Completion is expected in 2018.
