A new 79-story condominium tower in Jersey City has welcomed its first residents, with closings underway at what is the state’s tallest residential building.
COA 99 Hudson LLC, the developer of the waterfront high-rise known as 99 Hudson, announced the milestone last week after what it says was a strong spring and summer sales period. Despite COVID-19 restrictions and other challenges created by the pandemic, the builder said 300 new condo owners will be moving in over the next 99 days.
“The vision for 99 Hudson is now a reality,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, the waterfront tower’s marketing and sales agent. “This building was conceptualized as a shining landmark in Jersey City’s skyline, enticing buyers from both sides of the Hudson River and beyond with its all-encompassing waterfront neighborhood location, ultra-luxury homes, and highly sophisticated urban lifestyle. We’re thrilled to now see buyers turn into residents and start enjoying the elevated lifestyle here.”
Designed by Perkins Eastman, the glass and limestone building has sold everything from studios to white box penthouses, according to a news release. Current prices range from $548,000 to more than $4 million for homes offering up to 2,500 square feet of living space.
The Marketing Directors also noted the tower’s location directly across the Hudson River from the World Trade Center, along with its 65,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space, including a modern, 3,800-square-foot fitness center and yoga and Pilates studio. Other amenities include a game room, golf simulator, screening room with bar, demonstration kitchen and work café.
Outside, residents will have access to a resort-style, eighth-floor amenity deck with an 80-foot-by-50-foot swimming pool, private cabanas, indoor and outdoor lounge and dining area with grills, a playground and dog run.
“The market has spoken, making 99 Hudson arguably the best-selling condominium building in the region,” said Edwin Blanco, a sales manager at 99 Hudson. “Now that closings are underway, we expect buyer excitement and sales momentum to increase even further this fall as we unveil designer model homes and welcome our homeowners.”
