Elevator Consultants Jersey City, New Jersey

Jersey City has a long history of building skyscrapers, dating back to 1928. The Labor Bank Building has the distinction of being the first high rise in the city. The 15-story structure is now known as 26 Journal Square and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. Today, Jersey City has over 30 buildings that rise to at least 300 feet. The tallest structure is currently 99 Hudson Street, which climbs 900 feet into the sky and is the 81st largest building in the United States. Of the 20 tallest skyscrapers in the state of New Jersey, half of them are in Jersey City.
