JERSEY CITY | 55 Hudson St. | 900 FT | 95 FLOORS

According to a recent update to the city's development map, a new proposal has been submitted for 55 Hudson St., Jersey City.

COMMERCIAL Sqft: 903,000
Retail Sqft: 17,500
Parking Spaces: 684
Height in Storeys: 95

This is down the street from the infamous 99 Hudson site. Originally planned for 95-storeys, but appears to now be 76 based on the update.

The site is currently a vacant parking lot: https://www.google.com/maps/place/55...ity,+NJ+07302/

This is great news for Jersey City and the New York metro area. The tower will no doubt compliment the Manhattan skyline.

The 95 floor trend is good to have.

Lets wrap up the last two days for the metro:

1) 55 Hudson at 900 ft and 95 floors
2) 666 5th Avenue at 1400 feet
3) 138 East 50th Street at 803 feet and 64 floors
4) 1399 Park Avenue at 23 floors and 253 feet
5) Hudson Yards Phase II supertall being over 1,100 feet +.
6) 101 Lincoln Avenue and 2401 3rd Avenue at 210 and 199 feet.
7) 269 West 87th Street at 170 feet.

Good two days for NY metro high-rises/skyscrapers/supertalls.

In my excitement, I just realized that this isn't residential sqft but commercial! It's an office tower! It reminds me of an interview Mayor Steven Fulop did with NY YIMBY a short while back...

Quote:
Journal Square and Urban Ready Living are the two largest projects underway now, correct? Are there any similar developments in the pipeline?

The Trump building is going to be a similar size; Goldman Sachs came in regarding a new tower next to their existing building on the waterfront, and we’re just starting to talk about that.
So that's a 95-storey, 903,000 sqft COMMERCIAL building. Sweet!!!

Site looks a little smaller than 30 Hudson, so this could possibly be in super tall territory (300m+).
Site: https://www.google.com/maps/place/55...31b2b8acdc404c

Probally wishful thinking, but this tower, with the floor plates of 30 Hudson, and it could be very tall. Good way I guess to attract NYC tenants with cheaper rents. Plus a new tallest for JC is always welcomed. Adds just a dynamic to the overall region skyline and would look great from the harbor at that location.

So a few more details about this... Goldman Sachs is the developer, or at least is the land owner of record. That have zoning rights for a tower of nearly 1 million sqft. I believe the height limit for the area is 990ft (will double check on Monday). They will likely need a variance form the city to building taller...

What's a fair ceiling height estimate for a 95 story commercial building? ;-)

These days isn't 12 foot pretty much standard? Sometimes 13', 14' w/ dropped ceilings.

Even at 12', it would be 1140 ft. At 15', I'd be 1425'. Eh, but that would be too much excitement with those figures. Too good to be true.

95-Story Supertall Planned For Jersey City Waterfront At 55 Hudson Street



Quote:
In New York City, the current real estate boom has left the largest marks on the Midtown Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn skylines, but the rise of Jersey City over the past few years has been equally if not more impressive. And while the latest additions across the Hudson have been predominantly residential, YIMBY has word that a 95-story tower is now in the works at 55 Hudson Street, which could make it the tallest building in both Jersey City, and all of New Jersey.

In a previous interview with YIMBY, Jersey City’s Mayor Steven Fulop told us that “Goldman Sachs came in regarding a new tower next to their existing building on the waterfront, and we’re just starting to talk about that.”

And now it seems those plans may soon begin to cycle through the public review process, as the city’s planning documents have been updated with the scoping for 55 Hudson Street.

While few design or usage specifics are yet available, the project will span 920,000 square feet, and planning documents specify commercial/office intent. Given that the new towers of the World Trade Center and Hudson Yards are much larger in terms of square footage — and stand relatively close to 95 floors — it would seem likely that whatever is entering the pipeline at 55 Hudson Street will be mixed-use in nature, likely including either a hotel or residences on its upper floors. The building will have 17,500 square feet of retail space, and 684 parking spots.

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.

Whether 55 Hudson Street sees a similar reduction remains to be seen, but anything exceeding 990 feet has to clear the city’s height limits through public review, and it seems likely that 55 Hudson will easily clear that mark.

While the latest update is encouraging, no completion date has been announced, and plans are clearly still being formulated. If the project does move forward, it may face competition in the height department from the 90-story hotel and casino planned at Liberty Rising, in southern Jersey City.

New Jersey’s Office Parks Empty as Christie Bolsters Cities

Quote:
Office vacancies in suburban North Jersey are as much as 27 percent, according to Cushman & Wakefield, a New York real-estate brokerage. They’re as low as 14 percent in urban areas, and Manhattan’s rate is 8.9 percent.

New York Life Insurance Co. won $33.9 million in incentives this year to move 325 jobs from suburban Parsippany to the Goldman Sachs Group Inc. tower in Jersey City, with access to mass transit.

“One of the primary factors in looking for a new location was proximity to public transportation,” Howe said by e-mail.

Eighty percent of New Jersey office space was built in the 1980s, according to James Hughes, dean of the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University in New Brunswick.

“That was considered leading-edge inventory,” Hughes said in an interview. “One of the major reasons New Jersey’s economy is growing slowly is that we just had too much of a concentration in suburban office buildings. People just don’t want them.”

Wow... something decent out of Christie?!

Well, props to him. Our cities are our future. Not the mindless, 60's brutalist structures called office parks that inhabit some of our "garden" filled suburbs.
