Work on the exterior of 99 Hudson Street is nearing completion. The external mechanical hoist has been dismantled and the remaining Jura limestone and glass panels are filling up the vertical strips in the curtain wall of Jersey City‘s tallest skyscraper. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by COA 99 Hudson, LLC, the topped-out 900-foot-tall residential tower soars prominently above the Hudson River waterfront and is clearly visible from Manhattan. Plaza Construction is in charge of building the 79-story project and Vidaris is overseeing the exterior envelope. The perimeter of the podium that contains the parking garage is also being enclosed with decorative metal panels.
A new rendering with a slightly modified exterior design has been posted on the construction fence of 25 Columbus Drive, along with a new name: The Charlotte. Meanwhile, work on the ground level of the 626-foot-tall Jersey City property is underway. The 57-story skyscraper is designed by Handel Architects and being developed by Mack-Cali, with Fogarty Finger as the interior architect. The structure will contain a total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately funded public school for pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza.
Permits have been filed for a 68-story mixed-use skyscraper at 242 Hudson Street in Jersey City. If approved, the 708-foot-tall building would be among the tallest structures in the state of New Jersey. Plaza VIII & IX Associates LLC, a subsidiary of Mack-Cali’s Roseland Residential Trust, is responsible for the development, which has previously been referred to as Harborside 8 and 9.
Work is wrapping up on the exterior of The Lively at 321 Warren Street in Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District as the 18-story, mixed-use structure nears completion. Designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by LMC, the box-shaped, light-colored structure will contain 180 apartments, 1,343 square feet of ground-floor retail, and a 14,200-square-foot black-box theater with dedicated space for local artists. The property sits in the heart of downtown Jersey City, steps away from the Grove Street PATH station.
Façade work is continuing on the forthcoming Canopy by Hilton hotel at 159 Morgan Street in Downtown Jersey City. The ground-up, reinforced concrete structure is topped out at ten stories and will yield a total of 211 rooms. The project includes a rooftop bar and 6,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space, with the main lobby located on the second floor and connected to street level by an elevator. KABR Group is the developer of the property, which will be the first Canopy by Hilton location in New Jersey. Katerra is in charge of construction of the mixed-use building.
