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.
Construction at 200 Amsterdam Avenue is quickly rising above the surrounding rooftops. When topped out, the 668-foot-tall residential development will hold the title of tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side until Extell‘s 775-foot tall tower at 50 West 66th Street tops out. The building is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, which was responsible for The Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards. SJP Properties is the developer while CetraRuddy is the lead interior designer. The 283,000-square-foot project, which sits at the southwestern corner of Amsterdam Avenue and West 70th Street, will yield 112 residential units.
Construction of what may temporarily become the tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side is poised to go vertical. As of yesterday, the building’s crane has arrived, and has been successfully installed for the soon-to-be 51-story 200 Amsterdam Avenue. Work has already reached the ground floor, with the foundation likely near completion. Concrete pouring for the first floor slab remains forthcoming. SJP Properties is responsible of the development.
The second twin of The Modern Towers at Fort Lee officially opened its doors to residents in a ceremony yesterday, following a successful round of pre-completion closings.
Overlooking the George Washington Bridge and the Hudson River, The Modern is a two-tower development designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Today, SJP Properties has announced that leasing has commenced for the project’s Phase II, which has officially reached full completion.
