Jersey City‘s soon-to-be-tallest skyscraper at 99 Hudson Street has had a fairly speedy rise into the skyline following its ground-breaking back in January of 2016. YIMBY last checked in on the project in August of last year, when foundation work had just begun, and since then, the building has sprouted well above ground. Now, the tower is rising above the garage and retail portion, and facade installation has also begun.

The site is being developed by China Overseas America, Inc., and Perkins Eastman is the architect. It will stand 79 stories and 900 feet to its rooftop, handily surpassing the Goldman Sachs tower at 30 Hudson Street, which is 781′ tall.

Within, there will be 1.5 million square feet of space, including 15,000 square feet of retail space, and 14,000 square feet of public space. The bulk of the square footage will be divided amongst 781 condominiums.

The exterior will be limestone, and as shown in the latest photos from JC_Heights, the skeleton of the podium floors is now being clad. Work on the tower is up to the twelfth floor, with another 68 to go before topping-out.
