NEW YORK | 150 Amsterdam | 143m | 42 fl | Com

I am not sure what is the right hight of floors. I got the information from Emporis. 42 floors and 143 meters. Some say is between 40 to 45 floors. Although it looks taller. We have to wait and see. But this one is been going up for a while.




Not too much information for this tower, except for this I found...

150 Amsterdam Avenue

The American Red Cross property at West 66th Street was sold to a developer who is building a 41-story rental building. The rest of this strip (i.e. north to West 70th Street) is owned by a single developer, who is beginning construction of a series of buildings along the Avenue. A third developer has completed construction of a 30-story tower on West End Avenue at West 70th Street.

In 2006 the New York City Opera was in talks with the developer to possibly relocate to the base of 150 Amsterdam, but the deal did not go through.

The American Red Cross site (lot 129) was sold to A & R Kalimian Realty for $72 million. The plans include a 45-story, 80/20 rental building, which includes a community facility as part of the structure.

Looks pretty good in the rendering. I've passed by this one a couple of times and I had wondered what it was.

This will be an interesting addition to the skyline. The bright blue glass will certainly contrast with everything around it, making it more noticeable. Looks good, probably see it on my next trip to NYC.

^ I'm sure it would be nice for Amsterdam, but they happen to be building this one in Manhattan.

Lots of visual interest to lead the eye upward. Nice.

All I see is him correcting the other forumer in a not-so-negative way. Pipe down.

It was not meant seriously, it was more like a joke. Though I would not see that New York would be. Let it go, I think we Europeans have a different sense of humor than you.
Nice updates!
