JERSEY CITY, NJ – Buyer confidence in the New York metro area’s luxury condo market is back, and nowhere is that more evident than at 99 Hudson where the iconic 79-story building on the Hudson River waterfront in downtown Jersey City has reported accelerated sales velocity since the start of 2021.
Ten contracts have already been taken on luxury condominiums at 99 Hudson in the new year as New Jersey’s tallest residential tower surges in sales, according to developer COA 99 Hudson, LLC, which tapped The Marketing Directors to oversee the successful sales program.
Closings at 99 Hudson also quickly surpassed the 150 mark, with over 100 closings completed in the last two months. The robust activity has generated a new level of energy at the building, transforming it into a lively residential address.
“I believe buyer perception of city living has shifted in the past couple of months, with the rush-to-the-suburbs reaction to the outbreak of Covid-19 waning considerably,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors. “Buyers are once again focusing on the appeal of living in a highly-amenitized building in a vibrant urban setting where you can walk to everything you need. We’re certainly seeing that at 99 Hudson.”
Forced quarantining and a shutdown of favorite social destinations over the past year have buyers longing for access to private and public recreational and open space, a place where 99 Hudson shines. The building’s 65,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities includes an 8th floor amenity deck which boasts an 80 by 50-foot swimming pool, cabanas for lounging, al fresco dining spaces with BBQ grills, playground, dog run and landscaped green lawn. 99 Hudson also offers an exclusive, residents-only spa with hot tub, wet and dry lounges, steam room, dry sauna, showers, spa terrace, and private massage rooms. An impressive 7,500 square feet has been dedicated to open space and pedestrian plazas.
Inside, health and wellness are fostered by a state-of-the-art 3,800 square-foot Fitness Center and dedicated yoga and Pilates studio.Social interaction and a communal vibe will be created by a game room with card rooms and pool and foosball tables, golf simulator, screening room with bar, children’s playroom, demonstration kitchen, and work café. The 99 Hudson Club Room features a library, flat screen TV, and lounging, dining, and entertaining spaces. There is also a 24-hour concierge. A dramatic triple height lobby welcomes residents and their guests, while a private, off-street porte-cochere provides secure access by car or foot.
Neighborhood attractions include 1,500 acres of public waterfront park and 19 miles of Hudson River biking and jogging pathways, as well as downtown Jersey City’s celebrated social, arts, cultural, dining and nightlife scene.
Designed by Perkins Eastman, 99 Hudson features a collection of well-appointed studios to two-bedroom homes and a limited number of expansive, top-floor Penthouse residences. Select homes offer balconies. The upscale residences offer up to 2,500 square feet of living space and are priced from $548,000 to over $4,000,000.
Homes feature open layouts with floor-to-ceilings windows that bathe the homes in natural light and frame dramatic vistas of the Manhattan skyline, World Trade Center, New York Harbor and Statue of Liberty. Stylish finishes include oak flooring, kitchens with quartz stone countertops, stainless steel Kohler fixtures and a premium suite of Bosch appliances; and spa-like master bathrooms with custom millwork and Italian ceramic statuario flooring and wall tiles. All cabinetry throughout these elegant homes has been imported from Italy. Each residence will also have a Bosch washer and dryer.
Standing directly across the Hudson River from the World Trade Center, 99 Hudson boasts a prime location at the intersection of Hudson and Greene Streets, just steps from the Exchange Place PATH station which whisks commuters to business and entertainment centers in midtown Manhattan and New York’s Financial District. NY Waterway ferries provide service to the 39th Street and Battery Park City terminals. Also, right outside the front door is the Exchange Place Light Rail station which provides direct access to other “Gold Coast” locales.
