I meant first supertall outside of Manhattan in NYC metro area. Pretty sure everyone else got it... why do you have to be so nitpicky? You sound silly to me.

Proposed Jersey City condo tower would be tallest building in N.J.

January 20, 2015
By KATHLEEN LYNN

Quote:
A developer plans to construct a 760-unit condo building in Jersey City that, at 95 stories, would be the tallest structure in New Jersey, Mayor Steven Fulop said Tuesday.
The building would be constructed at 99 Hudson St., a block from the Hudson River, by China Overseas America Inc. At 950 feet, it would be taller than the current tallest building in New Jersey, the 781-foot Goldman Sachs building at 30 Hudson Street in Jersey City.
"Our plan here is to continue building a world-class skyline and to continue leading the region in job creation with projects like this, and we couldn't be more excited to attract hundreds of millions of dollars of investment into the city," Fulop said in a statement.
[...]
The Jersey City planning board is expected to vote on the 99 Hudson St. plan this evening. If the project is approved by the planning board and city council, construction is expected to begin this spring.
Jersey City, New Jersey, to Get 95-Story Condo Tower
By David M. Levitt and Terrence Dopp Jan 20, 2015 12:06 PM ET

Quote:
[...]
“This building will literally have the best view in the world,” Fulop said. “It’s going to have panoramic views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the New York City skyline.”

The final project will include an affordable-housing component, to be determined, Fulop said.
[...]

95 stories, yet still 'only' 950 feet, plus a large crown element in the rendering; standby for supertall???

Seems like the design is finalized. City council is voting on approval literally right now, with construction to start in a few months. Not really an opportunity to increase height. Though I think they could, from a market perspective; no risk of saturating the condo market when you're the only new condo in town in 6 years. "95 stories" probably just means they're skipping some floor numbers, like 1 WTC.

some updates from the planning board meeting by CIA over at SSP

still might be a supertall, then.

990 ft puts it just into the Supertall category. I wonder if they did that on purpose...

So boomerang shape probably pointed at downtown. Makes sense since the selling point will be the insane eastward views. There's a building just north in Union City that has the boomerang shape with manhattan views. Troy Towers it's called.

Just wanted to be clear...990 ft is what has been determined to be the height to the roof, but the possibility exists with a crown or other element could be added to get officially over 1,000ft? I would hope so as if you're going to so close to supertall might just as well go all out and get there. Very happy to hear the actual tower will be very different from the rendering... 1 million square ft for a residential tower is pretty damned impressive, so I have no doubt that not only will it offer breathtaking, panoramic views but will be an aesthetically pleasing design... the one used as a model was simply too bulky, overpowering. Very happy as a lifelong Jersey City resident that we seem to be getting our very first supertall.... hopefully with the casino/condo/ hotel proposal that's been talked about we get at least two.

As a native New Jerseyan I'm very excited for this tower. Whether it's a supertall or not it will still be the focal point of JC.

Now that I look closely at the crown, I can very easily see the "C" or boomerang shape. Look how the top of the crown angles inward in the back. It will look a lot like a two-legged Lake Point Tower in the back.

This is acutally 990ft/302m tall and should be moved to the proposed supertall section.

Can confirm the 990 ft status. I live literally across the street from this site, so everyone is buzzing about it. It's officially a supertall.

Am I the only one thinks that 95 floors in 990 feet is a bit of a tight squeeze? If there were that many you'd think it be much taller. 111 West 57th is also 95 floors and is 1400ft+.

1. We don't know if the floor count is official.
2. Developers love to skip some floors.
3. Manhattan luxury towers have a greater ceiling height than any other skyscraper projects in the world.

Hmm... all very true. Particular if we're talking a Chinese developer we might find this building is missing every floor with the number "4" in it. Either way as it stands the numbers given don't add up. THe official press release gives those figures, if it's approved there must be docs somewhere.

EDIT: I just read on SSP, from someone who was at the planning meeting, that the height has been fixed at 990ft. So it's probably the floors.
