75th Floor Penthouse Home at Iconic Waterfront High-Rise is Highest Priced Residential Condo Closing in Jersey City History
99 Hudson continues to rewrite Jersey City’s real estate record books. The iconic 79-story condo building, New Jersey’s tallest residential tower, announced today the record-breaking sale of a 2,473 square-foot Penthouse on its 75th floor.
The home sold for a newsworthy $3.9 million, making the transaction the highest priced residential condominium closing in Jersey City history. Made even more impressive, the residence was delivered in “white box” condition without walls or finishes, providing the buyer a blank canvas to personalize their home.
The Penthouse boasts 1,167 square-feet of private outdoor space to maximize panoramic views which include all of Manhattan, stretching from Wall Street to the George Washington Bridge and southwest to the Statue of Liberty.
“This sale is notable on several fronts,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and sales agent for 99 Hudson. “First and foremost, it set a new sales record for a residential condominium in Jersey City, an extraordinary feat when considering the housing market challenges over the past 12 months. Secondly, the notable contract price was achieved on a white box home, allowing the new owner to customize their dream home 800 feet in the air.”
