A new video shows a time-lapse view of the construction of the soon-to-be tallest tower in New Jersey.

Crews have been busy at 99 Hudson St. in Jersey City building the 889-ft.-tall structure, since January 2016, reported. Developed by China Overseas America, the structure will house 781 condos across 79 floors upon its 2019 completion. Currently, crews have completed about 50 stories.

Located on the waterfront of the Hudson River, the building is just two blocks away from what will now be the second-tallest building in New Jersey—the 781-ft. Goldman Sachs building, reported.
