The $4.4 million condo: 99 Hudson in Jersey City smashes its own sales record

Records are made to be broken. But did anyone think the mark for the highest-selling condo in Jersey City would be topped this quickly — and by this much?

For the second time this year, the ultra-luxury high-rise 99 Hudson in downtown Jersey City recorded the highest priced residential condominium sale in city history — at $4,438,500, or more than 10% higher than the previous mark, set in the spring.

The property is the largest penthouse home at the 79-story tower, New Jersey’s tallest residential building. The 2,500-square-foot, east-facing residence on the 76th floor also features an additional 655 square feet of outdoor space spread across two terraces that fully maximize its views of all five New York City boroughs.

The new closing surpassed a 75th-floor penthouse, which sold for $3.9 million.

Jacqueline Urgo, president of the Marketing Directors, the building’s exclusive marketing and sales agent, said the numbers speak for themselves.

“The recent penthouse closings, combined with the robust sales activity we’ve achieved across the spectrum at 99 Hudson, speaks volumes about the appeal of this extraordinary residential building and the confidence buyers have in its enduring quality and value,” she said.

“It’s a unique property in terms of height, views, lifestyle amenities and location, and buyers are responding.”

Designed by Perkins Eastman, 99 Hudson features a distinctive limestone and glass exterior that embodies sophisticated residential architecture. A collection of well-appointed studios to two-bedroom homes and a limited number of expansive penthouse residences is available, with select homes offering balconies.

Homes feature open layouts with floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the living spaces 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, 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.

Homeowners enjoy an elevated lifestyle stemming from the building’s 65,000 square feet of completed indoor and outdoor amenities, which include an 8th-floor amenity deck boasting an 80-by-50-foot swimming pool — the largest in a residential building in Jersey City — 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. An impressive 7,500 square feet has been dedicated to open space and pedestrian plazas.

The upscale residences range up to 2,500 square feet in living space and are priced from $548,000 to over $4 million.

How much over $4.4 million remains to be seen.
