Yesterday 200 Amsterdam Avenue, a 668-foot-tall residential tower on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, conclusively won the long legal battle that allows for new construction without the fear of new retroactively enforced interpretations on those permits. The New York Court of Appeals denied an opposition group’s attempt to appeal a previous court’s ruling upholding the validity of 200 Amsterdam’s building permits. Earlier this year, a previous ruling from the New York State Appellate Division, First Department, ruled in favor of developers SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan America by unanimously overturning the lower court’s ruling. The trial court ruling sought to apply a retroactive draft zoning interpretation which would reduce the height of the constructed 52-story building designed by Elkus Manfredi.
