Fulop has the charisma of a dead moth. But good for him for plugging his city on video. The development looks handsome. The crown needs work though.

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.
Slightly over 10 feet per floor is perfectly reasonable for a high-end Jersey City condo building. The floor heights for 77 Hudson and Crystal Point (the current top-of-the-line condo buildings in Jersey City) are similar. 77 Hudson has 48 floors in 500 ft, and Crystal Point has 42 floors in 436 feet. Both skip the 13th floor only. A Chinese developer may choose to skip the 4th and 44th floors as well, but I wouldn't count on that necessarily. 95 floors in 990 feet matches 77 Hudson and Crystal Point perfectly.

Nothing in this building is going to sell for eight figures. (The current Jersey City condo sale record is $2.85 million, I believe, set about a year ago in 77 Hudson.) The 57th St buildings are not comparable.

Amazing project, but still many parking lots to fill in the area before it becomes real urban around there.

True--though the rendering uses a photo from about two or three years ago. A bunch of those parking lots are now buildings (either complete or under construction). I spot 18 Park (complete and occupied, just a vacant lot in the photo), Warren at York (complete and occupied, under construction in the photo), Majestic II (under construction, parking lot in the photo), 70 Columbus (under construction, vacant lot in the photo), URL Harborside I (under construction, parking lot in the photo), 65 Bay (under construction, vacant lot in the photo), Provost Square I (under construction, parking lot in the photo), 110 First (under construction, vacant lot in the photo) and Marbella II (under construction, vacant lot in the photo).

Probably some other small developments I'm missing, too.

Amazing to hear a super tall here. I like the design too. Hopefully this will be amazing start for more projects like this that will make JC denser with a higher skyline.

According to that Render published by YIMBY, I can count 7 or 8 floors for the podium, about 38 floors for the first section of the tower, then a band, perhaps for technical floors, that seems to have about 3 floors, then the upper section of the tower with 27 floors, with a total of about 75 real floors.

Then again, it's only a conceptualized pic that is a placeholder for the final design, but I do gather there will likely be a few phantom floors. Definitely looking forward hopefully soon enough we'll see the final rendering of the real deal..lol thankfully Extell isn't behind this or we probably wouldn't see the final render til they are halfway up the building(lol it's still beyond ridiculous they haven't actually come out with the final render of 217 W57th, though pretty much expected to be close to the one YIMBY posted a few months back)

Hopefully they eliminate the parking requirements for the buildings in Jersey City. Most buildings built in Downtown have huge parking garages and very little retail...it seems to kill the pedestrian vibrancy.

Hopefully they will address the retail issue going forward. From the YIMBY article: 'The development also learns from past planning mistakes (which can be painfully seen in Newport) regarding the practice of having high rise towers atop bulky parking garages. 99 Hudson is required to have residential units wrap around much of the parking structure to hide it from important street views."

In Journal Square they are taking this approach is well.

The rendering is apparently "conceptual", so who knows.

This would be consistent if we were to take 95, and subtract 13, 14, 24, 34, 40-49, 54, 64, 74, 84, and 94. As per Wiki this is not unheard of.

However, I will add that LastConformist's observations on the heights of other residential towers in NJ (and looking at a few others), the numbers would actually add up. At 75 they'd be looking at ceiling heights of around 12' 4" whereas at 95 you'd have something around 9' 10" (probably a bit less considering the crown and the base). Either way there's only so much speculation we can make, only time will tell.

Note the sheer size and girth of the tower. Combining two towers worth of units into one supertall will result in a tower on a par with office towers for scale and mass. This will dominate the skyline.

The site is still an active parking lot. Groundbreaking is in the Summer, so still a few months.

I am really excited about this one, the other ones in JC, the Journal Square development, Newark construction, the high rises in Fort Lee, Brooklyn downtown and other new CBDs along the BK river banks, LIC , the projects around the wheel in Staten Island and finally the new CBDs and supertalls in midtown and the towers popping up in LM. That will be a sight in a few years, i cannot wait.

Just look at the planning board agenda for next week, June 9. This one's on there with final site plan. Should be exciting to see!

I figured it would get a height cut, still a great project though

Hopefully the floors are higher than before?
