Construction at 200 Amsterdam Avenue has topped out. The residential skyscraper stands 668 feet high above the Upper West Side and has secured the title of tallest structure in the neighborhood, if only temporarily. The 51-story building is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and developed by SJP Properties. CetraRuddy is the lead interior designer for the 283,000-square-foot project.
SJP Properties commented on the milestone with the following statement:
“200 Amsterdam, our prized new development in the heart of Lincoln Square, has reached its top residential floor today (52). 200 Amsterdam’s distinctive crown feature is expected to be completed in September. Construction commenced in the fall of 2017 and has continued unabated since. We look forwarding to officially launching sales also this September.”
Photos from across Central Park and from across the street show the scale and height of the stepped reinforced concrete superstructure.
Amenities for 200 Amsterdam Avenue include an indoor swimming pool, a fitness center with a yoga space, a sauna room, a conservatory, a virtual golf room, a children’s playroom, and a residential lounge. East-facing units will offer views of Central Park, while future occupants looking to the west can see the Hudson River. Two duplex penthouses with 360-degree views will sit on the top four floors.
The closest subways are the 1, 2, and 3 trains at the 72nd Street-Broadway station and the B and C trains at the 72nd Street station on Central Park West. Both of these stops are a short walk to the north. Meanwhile, Lincoln Center is only a five-minute walk to the south and Central Park is less than ten minutes to the east by foot. The sales gallery for 200 Amsterdam Avenue is located at 169 Amsterdam Avenue.
Completion of 200 Amsterdam Avenue is slated for next year.
