JERSEY CITY | 99 Hudson Street | 271m | 889ft | 76 fl | U/C



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

previously:



A 1.1m sf tower should be very tall even if it has a massive multi-story retail base.

There's enough sf to exceed 300m. The views of Manhattan, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Ramapo Mountains would be amazing.

My fear is they'll do what it looked like the previous owners wanted to do and approximate what was done at the two tower complex of 77 Hudson Street and 70 Greene Street next door. Build two fifty story towers, one condo and the other rental. I like those two towers, but they should build much bolder especially with the URL Harborside project not too far away. Use some higher floor plates, too...go something like 65-75 stories, dare to go at least 900ft or screw that edge higher with the first supertall in New Jersey...don't be predictable, give New Jersey some treasures too!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chinese firm makes $70M all-cash building buy in Jersey City

Quote:
China Construction America has purchased a 1.1 million-square-foot building on the Jersey City waterfront, marking the firm’s second all-cash real estate deal in the New York area since April.

CCA paid $70 million for the mixed-use site at 99 Hudson Street, and has plans to develop the space as an upscale complex with luxury condominiums, rental apartments, retail and a boutique hotel, Real Estate Weekly reported.

The firm, which established a real estate development arm called Dynasty Capital earlier this year to invest in the area, purchased a Class A office building at 445 South Street in Morristown, N.J., for $71 million in April.

CCA has plans to continue expanding its presence in the area, the firm told REW.

“We are pursuing a relatively cautious investment strategy while remaining agile and responsive to market opportunities,” Ning Yuan, president of CCA, told REW.
Naturally, I'd love to hear that the building will be replaced by one or more shimmering towers!

^That's NOT it. It's across the street on Hudson Street, in a lot between 101 Hudson(42 story office tower owned by Mack-Cali) and the 50 story residential developments of 77 Hudson and 70 Greene. Currently being used as a parking lot. HOPEFULLY they'll be bold and not just place another twin 50 story residential development but with the URL development by Mack-Cali/ Ironstate nearby they go bolder and higher to maximize the location just off the waterfront.

How is a "1.1 million sq, ft. building" a parking lot? Is it just me or is the reporting on this transaction terrible?

The latter...there is room for 1.1 million square feet but the building just ain't there yet. I live in Jersey City, and follow the news and it had been reported a few weeks earlier that the land was likely going to be sold to a Chinese development firm. It has been now, and we await exactly how they will put together their proposed combination of condos, rentals, boutique hotel and high end retail.

I see. Well, a shovel-ready site make me feel much better about this thread being here as well as the chances of a very tall tower or two rising!

Revealed: 99 Hudson St.



Quote:
The first renderings are up for a new project in Jersey City that promises to bring 1,000 units to the waterfront; the images come from architect Alex Stark’s website – though the towers’ official design architect is unknown. China Construction America purchased the land last November, for $70 million.

---

While the previous press release indicates that 99 Hudson Street would become one of the top-five tallest buildings in New Jersey, things have changed significantly since 2012, and a number of competing projects are about to begin rising across the Hudson; the multi-component nature of the Urban Ready Living and Journal Squared plans should ensure that those developments take the superlative spots after 30 Hudson Street. Nevertheless, the scope of 99 Hudson will be quite large, and each of the towers will stand 60 stories tall, ensuring major prominence on the Jersey City skyline.

The design vaguely echoes 8 Spruce Street. I'm kinda into it, actually. Jersey City is really picking up speed.

As a Jersey City resident who looks forward to the rising downtown/waterfront and city center skyline(maybe also to a lesser degree on the West Side of the city, where I live) thanks desertpunk for updating some of the major projects here and with so much under way, and which will be forthcoming over the next few years. Hopefully one day we can get a couple of supertalls in the mix....whatever the case over the next decade Jersey City will have an amazing skyline for a city of its size, or any size!

yes Jersey seems to be booming. Lots of projects at the moment.
These 2 towers will form a nice addition as well.

The overall quality of the architecture seems to be improving, too which is most important. With a skyline the size we will be having over the next decade which is so unusual for a mid sized city( helps tremendously our neighbor is New York City, primarily Manhattan and its exponentially exploding skyline!) don't want people to see our side of the Hudson River and go in an unimpressed fashion, "Yeah... big skyline but so "meh"!"

99 Hudson Street Gets Height Bump to 950 Feet, Will Become New Jersey’s Tallest Building
By: Nikolai Fedak on December 11th 2014 at 7:00 am

Quote:
Now, we have learned that initial plans have been discarded, and that Perkins Eastman is designing a 950-foot tall tower that will become the tallest building in the state of New Jersey, though images are not yet available.

With the current boom just beginning to kick into high gear across Jersey City’s waterfront as well as its Journal Square neighborhood, the news surrounding 99 Hudson Street should hardly be surprising. The site’s old plan offered a two-towered configuration, and while we do not know specifics regarding the layout of the new plan, we do know that it has received a substantial height boost.

The changes are likely the result of the site changing hands, as China Construction America purchased it last year for $71 million. Hartz Mountain Industries and Roseland Property Company were the former owners, and had previously announced that 99 Hudson would total 1,000 units, and create over 2,000 construction jobs. Neither positive figure should waver much with the new developer.

The largest nearby project currently in the works is Urban Ready Living Harborside, which will yield three towers of fifty floors or greater. Perkins Eastman is also the architect behind Hudson Exchange West, a major mixed-use development located several blocks to the north. Given 99 Hudson’s location near the Exchange Place PATH Station, the project’s size is definitely warranted, and its 1.1 million square feet will transform a block currently occupied by surface parking.

Several similarly-sized opportunities await nearby, and in YIMBY’s recent interview with Jersey City’s Mayor Fulop, he mentioned both the plans by China Construction America, as well as a new tower by Goldman Sachs.

When complete, 99 Hudson Street will become the tallest building in all of New Jersey, topping nearby 30 Hudson Street’s 781-foot pinnacle by a wide margin. The list’s current #2 is the 548-foot tall Merrill Lynch Building at 101 Hudson Street, and while several current projects will rise substantially taller than that, none have yet been confirmed to surpass 30 Hudson.

A 95-story casino project has the potential to take the city’s crown by an even wider margin, though that plan is likely several years or more away from fruition, and no designs have been made public.
Jersey City is on fire!

So, this should have the title change and be moved to the skyscraper proposed section...

Not gonna lie, as a Brooklyn homer I wanted the first supertall outside of Manhattan to be in Brooklyn. It looks like JC might be getting it first though.

Jersey City is on fire!
As a Jersey City resident, I LOVE this! And from all accounts the massive 12 tower Hudson Exchange project Perkins Eastman is going to construct appears superb too, though from what has come out these buildings will all range from 35 to 45 stories, 400-500 ft max. This one really excites me though.... the original two tower design was fantastic in itself, and as the article states it's not yet clear iif they're putting all the height in one massive tower or spreading it into two leaner, yet soaring ones. It also mentions Goldman Sachs developing its site next to its tower (and GS also owns a substantially sized lot at 55 Hudson, right across from the 50 story 77 Hudson tower. While it's certain that GS isn't developing another building for itself with their already complete headquarters just across te Hudson in Lower Manhattan, gotta think they want to develop something like a hotel/condo/retail site. Along with the news of the new, gargantuan plan for 99 Hudson plus the redevelopment of an old bank office complex to a swank new boutique hotel it's going to give real life to an underserved area downtown in terms of a 24/7 vibe as opposed to a Monday-Friday business orientation. Big news for up and coming Jersey City!

You sound Silly. First there are many supertalls outside of Manhattan. Second New Jersey is it's own State.
