JERSEY CITY - Work is beginning on what will soon be New Jersey's tallest skyscraper. 

The location, 99 Hudson St. in Jersey City is just a parking lot right now, but soon it will be home to the tallest building in the state. 

The building will be 79 stories and 900-feet tall. It is expected to reshape the Jersey City skyline.

It will also be one of the largest residential buildings in the nation, supporting 781 condominium units.

"It's really remaking not only the Jersey City skyline, but the New Jersey skyline and when people look at Jersey City, It's going to give a sense of pride for not only the investment that happens here and what this skyline looks like overall,” says Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop.

The developer, China Overseas America, will also include 18,000-square feet of commercial and retail space, with more than 7,000-square feet of a public plaza.

Jersey City is currently home to seven of the 10 tallest buildings in New Jersey.
