Last Wednesday, developers Related Companies, Mitsui Fudosan America, and Oxford Properties celebrated the grand opening of 50 Hudson Yards, a 78-story supertall commercial skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Designed by Foster + Partners, the 1,011-foot-tall structure is the largest building by volume in the first phase of the Hudson Yards complex and the fourth-largest in the city overall, yielding 2.9 million feet of office space. ArcelorMittal provided the steel components, R&R Scaffolding provided the BMU equipment, Langan Engineering is the civil and environmental engineer, and WSP is the structural and MEP engineer for the $3.8 billion project, which occupies a full block bound by West 34th Street to the north, West 33rd Street to the south, Tenth Avenue to the east, and Hudson Boulevard to the west.
The Upper West Side’s top-selling new development, 200 Amsterdam, has shared with YIMBY that a new penthouse designed by Studio Mellone will be unveiled in the coming months. As a part of the building’s Penthouse Collection, the residence sits amongst the top floors of the 52-story, 668-foot-tall, 112-unit, and 300,000-square foot condominium tower, which is located on the corner of 69th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. The Art Deco-inspired tower was designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, and developed by SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan America, with interior spaces by CetraRuddy. Closings are underway, and prices for available one- to five-bedroom residences starts at $3.1 million. The Penthouse Collection includes full-floor and duplex residences beginning at $17.9 million.
Photos from Williams New York reveal a completed facade at 200 Amsterdam, a new 668-foot-tall condominium tower on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, the Art Deco-inspired facade, combines a mix of granite and limestone, ornate decorative panels, and dramatic oversized windows.
Yesterday the New York State’s Appellate Division, First Department, unanimously ruled in favor of 200 Amsterdam Avenue‘s developers, SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan America, and the construction of the Upper West Side’s current tallest skyscraper. The First Department ruling affirmed the building permits for the Elkus Manfredi Architects-designed structure, which stands 668 feet tall. It also serves as a win for the City of New York, while overturning the lower court’s February 2020 trial court ruling, which had sought to retroactively apply a draft zoning interpretation calling for a reduction in height for the 52-story tower.
Exterior work is nearing completion on 200 Amsterdam Avenue, the Upper West Side’s current tallest skyscraper and number 22 on our countdown of the tallest projects underway in the city. Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and developed by SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan America, the 668-foot-tall, 52-story structure will yield 283,000 square feet with interior design by CetraRuddy. The tower was the subject of intense NIMBY opposition earlier this year, culminating in a State Supreme Court ruling calling for a possible height reduction of 20 or more floors. However, the developers appealed the decision and construction continued as planned.
