Façade work has reached the crown of 200 Amsterdam Avenue, the Upper West Side’s tallest skyscraper. The 52-story, 283,000-square-foot project is being developed by SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan America and is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects with CetraRuddy as the interior designer. Despite heated opposition from NIMBY civic organizations led by the Municipal Arts Society and a ruling by a Supreme State Court Judge that could lead to a reduction of 20 or more floors from the top half of the structure, construction is still continuing as planned.

Jersey City’s waterfront is set to give rise to another new skyscraper. City officials have approved Harborside 8, a 68-story, 708-foot-tall residential tower at the southeast corner of Second and Hudson Streets. Developed by Mack Cali and designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, the building will eventually top out as one of the tallest structures in the state of New Jersey.
Developers of the Upper West Side’s tallest building, 200 Amsterdam Avenue, were dealt an unprecedented blow last week when a State Supreme Court Judge ruled that 20 or more floors may have to be lopped from the residential skyscraper. Developers SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan America are in the process of appealing the decision, which is the latest in a string of community-led attacks on development throughout the city.
The construction crane at 200 Amsterdam Avenue has been fully disassembled and taken down. The topped-out residential skyscraper stands 668 feet high above the Upper West Side and is the 30th structure in our countdown of the tallest projects under construction in New York City. The 51-story building, which is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and developed by SJP Properties, stands as the tallest structure in the upper Manhattan neighborhood. CetraRuddy is the lead interior designer for the 283,000-square-foot project.
