Back in January, YIMBY reported on the groundbreaking ceremony held for the planned 79-story, 781-unit mixed-use tower under development at 99 Hudson Street, in Jersey City.

The 1.5-million-square-foot skyscraper, to stand 900 feet in height, will include 15,000 square feet of retail space and 14,000 square feet of public space, some of that in the form of a plaza. The plaza will be located on the corner of Grand and Greene streets. China Overseas America Inc. is the developer and Perkins Eastman is behind the design.

Checking In On New York City’s 2020 Skyline

YIMBY has brought you several composite renderings of what the skyline will look like over the next few years. Now we have a fresh image of what the city’s future holds, thanks to YIMBY Forums user Thomas Koloski, which illustrates the major changes soon coming to Jersey City, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Most of the projects added to the image are either already under construction or imminently rising, and their collective impact on the cityscape will push the New York City skyline to new, Coruscantian heights.
