Work is progressing on the glass and concrete crown atop 200 Amsterdam Avenue. The topped-out residential skyscraper stands 668 feet high above the Upper West Side and has secured the title of tallest structure in the neighborhood. 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.
An American flag is perched on the corner of the reinforced concrete framework of the crown.
Meanwhile, the curtain wall is climbing closer to the final floors of the tower.
Units on the upper floors will have 360-degree views of the Hudson River, the Upper West Side, Central Park, and the nearby supertalls of Billionaires’ Row. YIMBY previously checked out the views from one of the high floors at sunset with the golden hour light catching the glass, concrete, and terracotta exteriors of these soaring slender skyscrapers.
Amenities for 200 Amsterdam Avenue will 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. Other landmarks that can be seen from the project include The San Remo, Hudson Yards and the Vessel, the World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, One Vanderbilt, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the George Washington Bridge.
Completion of 200 Amsterdam Avenue is expected next year.
