The 79-story residential skyscraper, 99 Hudson Street, is being designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by China Overseas America. Plaza Construction is in charge of building what is already the tallest tower in Jersey City and New Jersey.
The 900-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure will include 781 units, some with private outdoor balconies and terraces that have uninterrupted views of Lower Manhattan and Midtown across the Hudson River. Vidaris is responsible for the exterior envelope that consists of a glass and Jura limestone curtain wall. The facade is less than 10 floors away from reaching the crown and upper mechanical floors.
YIMBY got to go on a hard hat tour of the 77th floor, just two levels below the top of the project, to check out the views looking east towards Manhattan.
