99 Hudson, the iconic 79-story upscale condominium building on Jersey City’s Hudson River waterfront, has shaped up to be one for the record books.

According to a May 24 announcement from developer COA 99 Hudson LLC, the highlight of April sales included the closing of a 75th-floor, 2,473-square-foot penthouse for $3.9 million, making it the highest-priced residential condominium closing in Jersey City history.

Following up a stellar start to 2021, New Jersey’s tallest residential building recorded an additional 10 sales in the month of April. Equally noteworthy, 99 Hudson is fast approaching 200 closings to date.

“Despite the circumstances that affected much of the real estate marketplace in the last year, 99 Hudson has consistently sold to a customer base that is confident in the enduring value and qualities of the property and its ultra-convenient location,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, the building’s exclusive marketing and sales agent. “We believe the appeal of 99 Hudson will continue to grow as the region reopens and residents look forward to once again enjoying all that a dynamic downtown lifestyle has to offer.”

Designed by Perkins Eastman, 99 Hudson features 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 more than $4,000,000.

Homeowners enjoy an elevated lifestyle from the building’s 65,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, which includes an eighth-floor amenity deck with swimming pool, cabanas for lounging,  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.
