I doubt it had 95 real floors to start.

There's no indication of a height cut.

The tower was always listed as 990 ft., and remains so.

76 real floors which are being marketed as 95. Same with 432 PA: 88/89 real floors, marketed as 96.

I would think with being condos, while the ceiling heights won't match the most generous towers in Manhattan they would be averaging out 13 ft or so per floor above the ground/retail level and at 76 floors, 990 ft that seems much more likely. As long as the height remains the same, I'm happy though I do hope soon for more news of both an updated design and groundbreaking date and glad to hear this is coming up next week.

Has anything happened with this tower as of late. I read an article from back in January stating construction was expected in late spring. Anything happening with it?

Going back to the Planning Board on June 9 for final approval... should be a breeze and hopefully ground broken by August. Just hope the lower number of floors doesn't drop the height a hundred feet or so. On Skyscraperpage saw one post that indicates height will remain the same but another made a case it will get a bit of a shave so no way to really know until that meeting.

Apparently gone under a slight shave...an update on SSP has it at 79 stories,(slightly up from the expected downgrade to 76 floors from 95) with a final height(without counting yet crowns or parapet) of 900 ft. Will return later if this is final to request a change to proposed skyscrapers. Still at 900 ft will be very prominent in the skyline and will have 1,385,000 square feet so won't be a skinny supermodel like we have a lot of popping up in NYC.

There was a final approval hearing last night at our city planning board and this is all I have heard so far... info coming from a poster at Skyscraperpage.com. Only other thing is there have been some design modifications but this is not going to be a tall, skinny assed tower. Going to be quite substantial with the added square footage so even if the height has been knocked down to 900 ft it's going to be very prominent and definitely a big upgrade for Jersey City!

So if the 900' figure doesn't count crowns or a parapet it could still be close to the original height? Maybe ~950?

Don't know yet, getting the info on Skyscraperpage and very little has come out other than it's 79 stories, and at least 900 ft. There have been some design changes, and it is big...nearly 1.4 mil square feet. So it's no skinny ass tower... going to be very definitive in the skyline, very imposing! But so far, that's it.

Anyone with a more detailed update on both 99 Hudson and the first tower on the Metro Plaza lot that both were on last night's Jersey City planning board agenda?

They should build this so 2WTC will have some better looking leaning boxes to look at.

There's been talk of "landbanking" though I hope that's not the case... way too valuable a property to just sit on. Theory is troubles affecting China(the company involved is their North American branch) have caused this project to go into stall phase.... that would be a shame and make no sense as their tower would have such an incredible view of the New York City skyline. Supposedly it would make more sense to build in a much more stable bet than the phantom towers built in China for neighborhoods that have no chance to actually function... quite a number of stories in the press about these Potemkin towers.

If they are planning on land banking it's very odd that they are hiring a project manager to oversee construction

Guys, if you look at YIMBY, Curbed an skyscraperpage the other shoe is about to drop and the other undeveloped lot left on that side of Hudson Street may well soon be going by the Planning Board (55 Hudson Street, owned by Goldman Sachs) for approval of a 95 story, supertall pushing structure. Though listed as commercial, at 920,000 square feet looks more destined for mixed use, with a considerable hotel/ condo component as GS certainly won't be using it to expand its presence in Jersey City. However absolutely makes sense with that prime location to get going.

as per YIMBY, this tower will be 900' tall. However, as citybooster posted, something in the supertall range will likely rise at 55 Hudson St.

This part of Jersey City will prove especially active in terms of development over the near-future, as just two blocks to the north, a major residential project is also in the works at 99 Hudson Street. While that building was initially expected to stand 990 feet to its roof, becoming the first “supertall” in New Jersey (standing over the 300 meter mark), it has since been downgraded slightly to 900 feet and 76 floors.
