Permits Filed: 200 Amsterdam Avenue, Upper West Side’s Tallest Building

In June, YIMBY revealed the glassy skyscraper at 200 Amsterdam Avenue, which may become the Upper West Side’s tallest building. Now permit applications have been filed for the 669-foot-tall structure.

SJP Properties plans to knock down a former synagogue between 69th and 70th Streets to make way for the half-million-square-foot, mixed-use tower. The Parsippany, N.J.-based firm scooped up the large site for $275 million last year and secured $175 million in financing with the help of the U.S. arm of Japanese real estate developer Mitsui Fudosan America in March.

The plans submitted today call for 283,000 square feet of residential space and a 3,000-square-foot medical office on the ground floor. The building would host only 112 apartments, for an average apartment measuring 2,527 square feet.

These apartments will undoubtedly be condos, and future buyers will have access to a slew of upscale amenities. The subcellars will hold “virtual golf,” a yoga/stretching room, a gym, pool, sauna, heated lounge, and a salt room. The first and second floors will include stroller storage, conservatory, club room, social lounge, rehearsal room, dining, kid’s room, and a “tween lounge.”
