Developer SJP Properties filed plans for a 670-foot tower on Amsterdam Avenue

The Upper West Side will have a new tallest building if developer SJP Properties’s proposal for a 670-foot residential tower on Amsterdam Avenue are approved.

The New Jersey-based developer submitted plans to the Department of Buildings for the building at 200 Amsterdam Avenue on the corner of West 69th Street today, YIMBY first reported.

The structure would replace a synagogue; plans to level the building were approved in June, the same month that Elkus Manfredi’s design for the 51-story building was first unveiled. It was announced at the same time that CetraRuddy would be handling the building’s interiors. According to planning documents, the building—presumably condos—will have a full-floor gym, an underground golf simulator, and a pool.

The 283,000 square foot building will have 112 apartments and a 3,000-square-foot space on the ground floor devoted to medical offices.

SJP purchased the along with Mitsui Fudosan America in October 2015 for $275 million. The developer acquired a $160 million loan for the project in March.
