Jersey City Waterfront Eyed For a 95-Story Supertall Tower

New, 10 comments

Welcome to State o' the Garden State, a Curbed feature in which we explore the new developments in New Jersey neighborhoods across the Hudson from Manhattan. Have a new development you'd like us to consider? Let us know via the tipline.


If there's anything the past few years have proven, it's that Jersey City can no longer be brushed off as New York's laughable little sister. The area along the Hudson River has grown skyward in leaps and bounds, with more than a handful of high-profile developments on the radar. And now it's time to add another one to that list: New York YIMBY reports by way of city planning documents that a 95-story tower will rise at 55 Hudson Street. Not to be confused with the city's other very tall tower planned for 99 Hudson Street, the plans for 55 Hudson Street seem like they may be the doing of Goldman Sachs whose existing waterfront building neighbors the site.

The project will cover 920,000 square feet and will primarily be composed of commercial and/or office space. YIMBY speculates that, as it's on par in size with developments at Hudson Yards, the building will probably also include a hotel or residences on its upper floors. Permits for the building say it will have 684 parking spaces and 17,500-square-feet of retail space. Because he building will exceed 990 feet under its current plan, it needs to go through New Jersey's public review process should the plan move forward.
