China Construction America has purchased a 1.1 million-square-foot building on the Jersey City waterfront, marking the firm’s second all-cash real estate deal in the New York area since April.

CCA paid $70 million for the mixed-use site at 99 Hudson Street, and has plans to develop the space as an upscale complex with luxury condominiums, rental apartments, retail and a boutique hotel, Real Estate Weekly reported.

The firm, which established a real estate development arm called Dynasty Capital earlier this year to invest in the area, purchased a Class A office building at 445 South Street in Morristown, N.J., for $71 million in April.
