Skyline of Jersey City (Use cursor to identify)

This list of tallest buildings in Jersey City ranks skyscrapers and high-rises in the U.S. city of Jersey City, New Jersey by height. The tallest building in Jersey City is the 42-story 30 Hudson Street, known widely as the "Goldman Sachs Tower", which rises 781 feet (238 m) and was completed in 2004.[1] It is currently the 49th-tallest building in the United States, and the tallest building in the state of New Jersey. The second-tallest skyscraper in the city is 101 Hudson Street, which rises 548 feet (167 m) and stands as New Jersey's third-tallest building.[2] Ten of the twenty tallest buildings in New Jersey are located in Jersey City.

The history of skyscrapers in Jersey City began with the 1928 completion of Labor Bank Building, which is often regarded as the first skyscraper in the city; it rises 15 floors and 179 feet (55 m) in height.[3][4] The building, now known as "26 Journal Square", was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[3] Jersey City went through a relatively small building boom in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and then entered a larger period of commercial and residential high-rise construction in the late 1990s. This second boom has resulted in the construction of many of the city's tallest buildings, including 30 Hudson Street and the Harborside Financial Center development. There are currently 16 completed buildings that stand at least 300 feet (91 m) in height, with another 36 under construction, approved for construction, or proposed for construction. In addition, Jersey City is the site of nine buildings that rise at least 492 feet (150 m) in height, including those under construction. Overall, Jersey City's skyline is ranked (based on existing and under-construction buildings over 492 feet (150 m) tall) first in New Jersey, fifth in the Northeast (after New York City, Boston, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh) and fourteenth in the United States.[A] As of April 2008, there are 88 completed high-rises in the city.[5]

Jersey City's skyscraper construction boom that began in the late 1990s has continued to the present, with 10 of the city's 16 tallest buildings being completed after 1997. The tallest building under construction in the city is The Residences at Liberty National Tower III, which is set to be completed by 2009 and contain 50 floors.[6] The approved Harborside Plaza 7 would become the tallest building in the city upon completion, rising 800 feet (244 m) and 59 floors.[7] As of April 2008, there are 52 high-rise buildings under construction, approved for construction, and proposed for construction in Jersey City.[5]
