Renderings of the 666-foot-tall Tower slated for the Upper West Side Renderings of the 666-foot-tall Tower slated for the Upper West Side
Demolition has begun at the site of the tallest building on the Upper West Side. Renderings uncovered by YIMBY show that 200 Amsterdam Avenue will be a 666-foot-tall tower whose wedding cake setbacks are , stone and glass tower whose cascade of setbacks aloong its eastern elevation will be reminiscent of the city's many pre-war skyscrapers - complete with an Art Deco-esque crown at its apex. The site, formerly home to the Lincoln Square Synagogue was purchased by SJP Properties, in partnership with Mitsui Fudosan, for $275 million in 2015. Elkus Manfredi is designing the exterior and CetraRuddy was chosen for the interiors. The tower will encompass 400,000 square feet along its 51 floors and house 112 residences. The tower will offer residents far-reaching views of Central Park, the Upper West Side and the Hudson River. At 666-feet, the building surpass Trump International Hotel & Tower (583') to become the tallest building on Manhattan's west side, north of 60th Street.
Although the NYC skyline is comprised of much taller buildings than 200 Amsterdam Avenue, its location is what makes it rare. Due to the neighborhood's strict adherence to the landmarks law, the Upper West Side has not witnessed the same flock of new developments that areas like Midtown and Downtown Manhattan have. This is also what makes the construction of such a tower controversial. Some Upper West Side residents fear their protected neighborhood will succumb to the trend of high-rise developments. However, 200 Amsterdam Avenue will have neighboring buildings that stand not much lower than it, including the newly built 598-foot-tall tower located at 160 West 62nd street.

Allen Goldman, president of SJP Properties, said the new residence "will cater to New Yorkers and families from the suburbs looking to downsize and move into the city." The Lincoln Center neighborhood, where the development lies within, has an average closing price per square foot of $2,261 for condo units according to CityRealty's July Monthly Market Report.
