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.
Upper West Side
Construction on 50 West 66th Street is moving along, and work has reached street level for the Upper West Side‘s future tallest building. Recent photos show a dense network of rebar laid out for the ground-floor slab, and bundled vertically for the construction of reinforced columns. The 775-foot-tall residential tower is being designed by Snohetta and developed by Extell.
New York City’s Board of Standards and Appeals again upheld the development and construction of 200 Amsterdam Avenue despite years of pushback from both neighborhood groups and members of the State Supreme Court. In possible protest of state-level overreach, the board’s vote of support will allow SJP Properties to legally continue construction of the 668-foot tower.
