Rising from its stately position along Amsterdam Avenue, 200 Amsterdam marks the arrival of a new classic, perfectly composed in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Located at the nexus of Lincoln Center and Central Park, the new, 52-story luxury condominium is developed by SJP Properties. Featuring two duplex Penthouses at the crown of the building and eight full-floor homes, 200 Amsterdam’s 112 graciously-sized residences range from one to five bedrooms. The highly anticipated building is nearing completion with delivery slated for this summer.
SJP Properties, known for developing over 25 million square feet of premier commercial and residential space in the New York Metropolitan region, tapped globally recognized Elkus Manfredi Architects to design 200 Amsterdam, partnering with internationally acclaimed firm CetraRuddy for interiors. The result is a contemporary interpretation of New York City’s classic prewar apartment homes.
“The Upper West Side is among the most desirable places to live in Manhattan, and yet there has not been a new residential offering here of this scale and caliber in decades,” says Steve Pozycki, founder and CEO of SJP Properties. “This neighborhood is home to some of the world’s leading cultural institutions such as Lincoln Center and the Museum of Natural History. 200 Amsterdam is within walking distance to many of these destinations and we consider the building’s location to be one of its greatest amenities.”
Elkus Manfredi envisioned 200 Amsterdam as an homage to the majestic landmarks lining Central Park West. The tower’s facade combines a mix of granite, limestone and glass. Ornate decorative metal panels pair with expansive windows creating a lighter, decidedly modern appearance. The impressive arrival is a fusion of classic New York and Art Deco elements. Alluring back-lit metal panels paired with Jet Mist granite and Alabama limestone create a powerful base, complimented by warm, welcoming landscaping.
Inside, CetraRuddy’s sophisticated, genre-defining interiors are the pinnacle of luxury. Captivating entry galleries coupled with expansive layouts deliver an elegant procession of space. Glass-cornered living rooms establish a sense of tranquility, framing cinematic vistas of Central Park, the Hudson River and a glittering cityscape. Contemporary kitchens are striking showpieces. Inspired by the hearths of Newport’s mansion homes, a modern, marble hood and waterfall-edge island are intended for gathering. White oak cabinetry complements a full suite of premium appliances from Miele, Wolf and Sub-Zero. Luminous primary bathrooms offer a graceful retreat with sumptuous, book-matched Cielo marble in rare soft greys with green undertones. Intricately patterned Iceberg marble floors and polished nickel hardware finish these timeless spaces.
The residences in the Penthouse Collection at 200 Amsterdam are some of the most impressive of their kind. Perched 660 feet in the sky, 360-degree views from 10-foot-tall, panoramic floor-to-ceiling window walls set the stage for drama. The homes are superbly appointed with the finest elements including Central Park-facing terraces, marble faced fireplaces, midnight bars in the primary bedrooms, spa-inspired steam showers, private elevators and entry vestibules, as well as grand staircases. The Penthouse Collection leaves no detail unturned.
Three floors of considered amenities cater to cultivated New Yorkers of every age. The Spa at 200 redefines serenity with over 20,000 square feet devoted to wellness. Features include a 75-foot heated saltwater pool, experiential showers, steam and infrared sauna, treatment rooms and a fitness center with dedicated Pilates and yoga studio, all curated by The Wright Fit. The Club at 200 evokes the ambiance of New York’s established private members clubs with a private dining room, lounge, club room, library and outdoor terrace. Inspired by Lincoln Center, The Little Composer’s children’s playroom boasts a performance and dress up area, while a separate soundproofed rehearsal room provides a professional-grade studio for budding or professional musicians alike.
“The smart lifestyle offering at 200 Amsterdam goes above and beyond to ensure residents will unwind in style,” says Robin Schneiderman, managing director of Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing. “The amenities also extend beyond building; you are walking distance between Central Park and Riverside Park, an abundance of cultural institutions are right down the street, as well as some of the city’s finest cafes and restaurants. The best of everything the city has to offer is right at your doorstep.”
Perhaps one of the most coveted amenities for the residents of 200 Amsterdam is the exclusive access to nearby Lincoln Center. The building partnered with the institution to develop a curated VIP membership, providing presale and complimentary festival tickets plus opportunities for special events not open to the general public. “We are particularly excited about this partnership and the rare opportunities it will provide to our residents,” Pozycki says. “Lincoln Center is arguably one of the most important arts and culture centers in the world and we are honored to support our iconic neighbor.”
