NEW YORK | 200 Amsterdam Avenue | 203m | 666ft | 51 fl | Prep

Hot Market for Building Sites Draws Crowd
by Daniel Geiger. 1/12/15.

Quote:
[...]
the owner of a property on the Upper West Side at 200 Amsterdam Ave. has put it on the block with an asking price of more than $400 million. Zoning would allow for the tallest building in the neighborhood, a 388,000-square-foot, 600-foot residential tower. CBRE is marketing the property and notes that the tower enjoys protected views of Central Park.

I believe so. A search for the address will bring you to a building down the street however.

Quote:
By 2006, the synagogue had outgrown its original building, 200 Amsterdam Avenue, at West 69th Street. It struck a deal with American Continental Properties, a development company. They agreed to a land swap — 180 Amsterdam for 200 Amsterdam — under which the synagogue would gain a site for a new building, designed by CetraRuddy, and about $20 million to help finance the project. The developer would gain a site for a new apartment tower that would replace the old synagogue.

this is a massing model by 6sqft which they did for part 3 of their "Skyscrapers set for NYC: Living in the sky" series.

SJP, Mitsui Fudosan to build Upper West Side’s tallest condo

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2015/10/...-big-uws-play/

Quote:
SJP Properties, in partnership with Mitsui Fudosan America, just closed on the purchase of a large development site at 200 Amsterdam Avenue, according to sources familiar with the transaction. Zoning allows for a 600-foot-high residential tower of nearly 400,000 square feet, and the partners intend to build luxury condominiums on the site.

When reached by phone late Thursday, SJP president Allen Goldman confirmed the purchase. He declined to comment on the purchase price, but sources familiar with the deal said it closed for close to $750 per buildable square foot, or nearly $300 million.

The condo project between West 69th and West 70th streets, Goldman said, will cater to New Yorkers and families from the suburbs looking to downsize and move into the city. The design, he added, would be “highly contextual with the architecture of the Upper West Side,” and the property boasts protected views of Central Park.

The seller, according to property records, was American Continental Properties. Founded by Daniele Bodini, the firm has substantial holdings in the neighborhood, and was represented in the deal by CBRE’s Darcy Stacom, Bill Shanahan and Paul Leibowitz. In January, CBRE began marketing the property, the former home of the Lincoln Square Synagogue, asking north of $400 million.

55-story project is slated to be the tallest building on the Upper West Side, a neighborhood where new condo product fetched an average price of $1,898 per square foot during the third quarter of the year, according to Halstead Property Development Marketing. Manhattan–based SJP, led by Steven Pozycki, has developed over 25 million square feet of office and residential space since 1981. It recently sold a noncontrolling interest in 11 Times Square to Norges Bank. Mitsui Fudosan America, the U.S. investment arm of Japanese development firm Mitsui Fudosan, paid more than $250 million in December for a large stake in Related Cos. 55 Hudson Yards. The firm’s other holdings in the city include 1251 Sixth Avenue at Rockefeller Center and 160 Madison Avenue.

51 floors http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/03/deve...west-side.html

Quote:
Last October, SJP Properties and the U.S. branch of Tokyo-based Mitsui Fudosan entered into a contract to buy 200 Amsterdam Avenue, a 5,000 square-foot plot currently occupied a vacant synagogue and located between West 69th and 70th streets on the Upper West Side. Commercial Observer reports the sale has since closed, along with $160 million in financing to fund the acquisition. The team of developers have been planning a high-rise condominium tower for the site, which can boast roughly 400,000 square feet of development rights. The latest plans call for a 51-story, 112-unit residential building, although retail space will also probably be included on the ground floor. Neither demolition permits for the existing structure and nor new building applications have yet been filed.

Demolition of the old synagogue building at 200 Amsterdam is ongoing, but very slowly. Much of the interior has been removed, but there apparently is quite a bit of asbestos to get rid of. Warning signs are posted. So I suspect it will be a while before the site is cleared and ready for new construction.

Synagogue now surrounded by scaffolding and coming down. Land should be clear for a new building fairly soon.

Good. A 600ft tower will really stand out here.

200 Amsterdam Avenue Revealed, The Upper West Side’s Soon-To-Be Tallest Building
http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/06/200-...-building.html



Quote:
The lower blocks of the Upper West Side have given rise to a sprinkling of skyscrapers in recent years, from the Fordham redevelopment to 200 West 67th Street. And now, YIMBY has the reveal for 200 Amsterdam Avenue, which will rise 666 feet to its roof, becoming the tallest building on the Upper West Side.

The site originally held a synagogue,. It was acquired for $275 million in 2015 by SJP Properties and since then the developer has landed $160 million in financing from Mitsui Fudosan.

Elkus Manfredi is designing the exteriors, while CetraRuddy is being tasked with interiors. The building’s 400,000 square feet and 51 floors will have 112 residences averaging over 3,000 square feet apiece.

I walked by the site this morning and chatted briefly with a worker at the fence gate. The scene from the outside hasn't changed in a long time. I asked if anything was happening and he said the building was coming down. Me: "How long will it take?" Him: "Maybe a month or two." Me: "How come so slow?" Him: "Well, we have to follow the rules." Me: "Kinda brick by brick?" Him: "Yeah." So patience will be a virtue here.

Permits were filed. 669 ft.

http://therealdeal.com/2016/09/27/vi...ilding-on-uws/
Quote:
Permits filed Tuesday for the planned 51-story condominium tower at 200 Amsterdam Avenue reveal a ritzy list of amenities.
SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan’s building, slated to be the tallest building on the Upper West Side, will have one entire floor devoted to fitness and offer virtual golf, a yoga studio, a pool, a sauna and salt rooms, permit filings reveal. Another floor will be dedicated to other forms of leisure, with plans for a conservatory, rehearsal room, club room and a tween lounge, according to the documents.

At 669 feet tall, the 112-unit building between West 69th and West 70th streets will tower above its neighbors.
