It’s been a long road for 200 Amsterdam. The developers had long planned for the 52-story residential tower to be the tallest structure on the Upper West Side, but those aspirations appeared to be in jeopardy last year. A New York Supreme Court judge ruled that the building’s permit should not have been issued, causing something of a logistical nightmare: The decision meant that the top 20 floors would have to be removed from the structure, which had only just topped off.
These sprawling homes have four bedrooms, four bathrooms and two powder rooms. Most importantly, you’ll be able to fully appreciate their lofty vantage point, as each has a private outdoor space as well as floor-to-ceiling windows all around the great room. The two floors are connected by a white oak and glass staircase, or a private elevator if you’d rather not make the trip on foot.
Future residents can also take advantage of the building’s many amenities. There’s a long list of fitness and spa perks, including steam rooms, a saltwater pool, gym and an infrared sauna, as well as communal spaces like an outdoor lounge, library and children’s playroom.
