The Gotham Organization’s new 20-story Upper West Side rental tower finally has a name: “The Corner at 200 West.”

The 196-unit building, which wraps around an obtuse-angled corner, is located at 200 West 72nd Street and Broadway.

The leasing office is open, and studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom units are available for occupancy April 1, Gotham announced today.

A Trader Joe’s will open in the building later this year, the company said.

The project, owned in a joint venture including Gotham, Rhodes NY and Philips International, broke ground in 2007 and rumors of the elaborate rooftop amenities at the building made waves this summer.

The building will boast even more over-the-top amenities: an Andres Escobar-designed lobby with a 1,754-crystal chandelier and a curved accent wall made from 15-foot bronze rods. There’s also a “decompression room” — a 200-square-foot arched passageway made from pebbles lit with LED lights and “designed to impart a feeling of cleansing as the passerby transition from the outside world to the comforts of home.” There there’s the “The Corner Club,” which features a third-floor leisure terrace, lounge and fitness center.

All the apartments come with their own Bosch washer and dryer.
