Façade work is nearing completion at 99 Hudson Street, the tallest skyscraper in New Jersey. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by China Overseas America, the topped-out 900-foot-tall residential tower soars prominently above the Jersey City skyline. Plaza Construction is in charge of building the 79-story project and Vidaris is overseeing the exterior envelope, which is getting close to wrapping up. Assembly of the glass crown and installation of the Jura limestone curtain wall on the lower levels are the only components remaining.
New photos from the Jersey City and Manhattan waterfronts show the scope of completed work.
The limestone cladding that spans the top of the tall main lobby entrance is currently being installed. The glass for the large atrium space should go in at a later time.
The construction hoist is still up, but could begin disassembly sometime soon. The crane atop the structure continues to lift and swing sections of the curtain wall above the building and into place.
The development will contain 781 units, including some with private balconies near the ends of each floor plate, and outdoor terraces on the upper setbacks below the crown. East-facing residences will have unobstructed views of the Lower Manhattan and Midtown skylines. Access to the light rail and the PATH train are conveniently located across the street, along with ferries to New York and up the Jersey City waterfront.
99 Hudson Street is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
