It was a summer to remember at 99 Hudson, one of the region’s most iconic condominium buildings.
Rising 79 stories above Jersey City’s Hudson River waterfront directly across from Lower Manhattan, 99 Hudson significantly added to its growing resident population with an impressive 31 homes closed between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The three-month flurry brought the total number of homes closed at 99 Hudson to more than 300.
The tallest building in New Jersey also bucked the market-wide slowdown during the dog days of summer with seven new sales in the month of August alone, according to The Marketing Directors, its exclusive marketing and sales agent. The firm attributes the recent sales push, in part, to soaring rental prices in the area which are tipping the scale more and more in favor of homebuying.
“We’re seeing a noticeable uptick in prospects who were comfortable with renting before being hit with significant post-pandemic rate increases,” said Jaqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors. “This is true for both New York City residents as well as those who were already living in Jersey City and experiencing its dynamic and ultra-convenient lifestyle. Both groups now see the value in purchasing a home in a building with exceptional living spaces, top-of-market amenities and services, and a great location.”
Full of Life
The elevated lifestyle and resident interaction at 99 Hudson are centered around its 65,000 square feet of completed, life-enriching amenities and engaging programming. A dramatic triple height lobby welcomes residents and their guests, while a private, off-street porte-cochere provides secure access by car or foot. Health and wellness are fostered by a state-of-the-art 3,800 square-foot Fitness Center and dedicated yoga and Pilates studio. Socializing and a communal vibe are created by a game room with card rooms and pool and foosball tables, multi-sport simulator, screening room with bar, children’s playroom, demonstration kitchen, and work café. The 99 Hudson Club Room features a demonstration kitchen, library, flat screen TV, and lounging, dining, and entertaining spaces. There is also a 24-hour concierge.
Outside, an 8th floor amenity deck boasts an 80 by 50-foot swimming pool — the largest outdoor pool in a New Jersey condominium building — cabanas for lounging, al fresco dining spaces with BBQ grills, playground, dog run and a 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. Additionally, an impressive 7,500 square feet has been dedicated to open space and pedestrian plazas.
