99 Hudson Gets FAA Clearance and 50-Foot Downgrade


Jersey City’s waterfront is about to undergo some major changes. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently gave clearance to 99 Hudson Street, a 900-foot tall, 79-story building which could become the state’s tallest building once completed. The building, which is being developed by China Overseas America, Inc., will feature 760 condominium units. According to The Jersey Journal, the project was originally slated to be a 950-foot structure with 18,000 sq. ft. of retail space. But instead the tower was recently reduced to 900 feet with 15,650 sq. ft. of retail space. Work on the tower is expected to commence next month, proving that New York’s skyline isn’t the only one that’s changing these days. —NY Yimby
