200 Amsterdam Announces Crazily Expensive Penthouses

The developers of the controversial 200 Amsterdam Avenue have revealed details about two duplex penthouses which will be asking about $40 million a piece, the Wall Street Journal first reported.

So if you were upset about this building before, or you were offended by the fact that one-bedrooms start at $2,950,000 … yeah.

The 6,000+ square foot penthouses will each come with four bedrooms, four full baths and two half baths. Both will have outdoor space. One penthouse’s terrace will be 283 square feet, the other one 651.

200 Amsterdam Avenue topped out just last week, and sales are expected to launch in September.

The main criticism from opponents of the new development has been centered on how air rights were purchased from neighboring properties. This ultimately gave the developers the ability to build much higher than they’d otherwise be able to.

The building stands 668 feet, which currently makes it the tallest building on the Upper West Side. It will house 112 apartments across 52 stories. Construction is expected to be complete by 2020.

The developers behind 200 Amsterdam Avenue are SJP Properties and Mitsui Fudosan America. The architect is Elkus Manfredi and CetraRuddy has been hired to design the apartment interiors.
