Hudson Greene is an apartment complex in Jersey City, New Jersey which consists two towers, the East Tower at 77 Hudson Street, which are condominiums,[1] and the West Tower at 70 Greene Street, which are rental apartments.[2] Both have 48 floors and are 500 ft (152m) tall. Construction on the towers began on June 25, 2006, and was completed in 2009 (77 Hudson) and 2010 (70 Greene). The East Tower at 77 Hudson Street has 420 residences and 19,000 square feet (1,800 m2) of street-level retail space. The building was designed by the architectural firm CetraRuddy.[3]

Building construction was beset with several problems. A fire on the West Tower in October 2007 delayed construction.[4] Fighting the fire proved difficult due to the stage of construction and status of floors and standpipes.[5] Five months later, in March 2008, a construction worker fell 14 floors to his death.[6]
