30 Hudson Street

Rising 42 stories at its peak and capped with an illuminated louvered glass crown, 30 Hudson is a landmark in Jersey City. The tower is connected to Manhattan via the “path train” and “water ferries” servicing commuter traffic.

The tower is clad in a curtain wall system incorporating a decorative art of tubes which, when viewed under natural light, adds to the perceived building depth. This approach to cladding glass towers should be understood as a modern interpretation of the historic stone clad tower with its multiple layers of articulation. This consolidated headquarters includes trading floors, amenity areas and administrative offices.

The building was LEED® Certified in April 2005.
