On Thursday, at a little before noon, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for 99 Hudson Street in Jersey City. Located on a site bounded by Hudson, Grand, Greene, and York streets, the 900-foot-tall mixed-use condominium tower will likely be the tallest building in the state and one of the tallest residential buildings in the entire country. The event not only kicked off construction, but also provided a venue to show off new renderings of the project.

The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), which has become a large network of centers, both in and outside of New York City, is constructing the David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care on the East Side. Located along the FDR Drive between East 73rd Street and East 74th Street, it will not only care for patients, but also have a research element. Thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that a fair amount of below-ground work has been accomplished.
