News Express:

This time, let’s talk about the news of Queen 200 Amsterdam in the Upper West Side in 2021. As we all know the Upper West Side is synonymous with Old Money and Classic, the epoch-making design of 200 Amsterdam in 2016 was under construction by an unreasonable protest led by the Environmentally Sound Development Commission (demanding the demolition of the 20-story building to reduce its size), September 10 this year, New York The Supreme Court’s appeals court rejected the protesters’ decision to appeal leave, unequivocally stating the legality of the building’s building permit. The crown was crowned, and 200 Amsterdam finally sat on the throne, becoming the only Queen of the Upper West Side.

200 Amsterdam is invested and built by SJP Real Estate Company and Mitsui Fudosan American Company. It is one of the six major consortiums of Mitsui Company in Japan. Such large consortiums often have strong financial resources, and the buildings developed are often very elegant in materials and designs. 200 Amsterdam has also been a dark horse in the buying and selling market this year.

Next, let’s take a look at this high-rise building on the west side:

Geographical conditions:

200 Amsterdam is located in Lincoln Square in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, with Central Park in the east, Hudson River and Riverside Park in the west. The Upper West Side itself has been an art for a while, with residents changing here over the centuries, and many of the buildings here retaining their original stance. The brownstone townhouses are located here. When we look at these buildings, they are ancient and strong, with straight spines jumping in the air, exuding an unrepeatable and untouchable atmosphere, which is the 19th century blooming in the United States. The splendor and pride of the ground plane.

The Upper West Side is recognized as one of Manhattan’s cultural and intellectual centers: several colleges and universities, museums, Broadway and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts are all surrounded by it. Living here can accept the influence of culture and art at any time, escape to Central Park after dinner to enjoy summer Philharmonic concerts and Shakespeare plays, and walk to the Metropolitan Opera in winter to enjoy world-renowned opera and dance.

200 Amsterdam is easily accessible, with a 2-block drive directly onto the Joe DiMaggio Expressway around Manhattan. In addition, there are 1/2/3/A/B/C/D subway lines that go directly to all corners of Manhattan.

The Upper West Side isn’t just food for the soul, it’s full of delicious food. Award-winning restaurants such as Marea, Masa, Bar Boulud and Jean-Georges are just outside 200 Amsterdam.

Building exterior

200 Amsterdam is inspired by the grand landmarks on the west side of Central Park and is a modern interpretation of New York’s pre-war classics. The residence reimagines timeless elements of a modern lifestyle and envisions New Yorkers of all ages with a variety of amenities.

200 Amsterdam’s Art Deco façade design combines granite and limestone, ornate decorative panels and striking oversized windows separated vertically and horizontally. Architectural finishes of different materials on the top floor form a crown design, like a queen’s crown. And the queen doesn’t need words. She has never given up after 3 years of hard work. In the future, she only needs to wear this gorgeous crown and quietly watch people come and go, and the stars rotate.

CetraRuddy reimagined timeless elements for contemporary living. Entrance galleries, classic living layouts and window corner rooms create a sense of tranquility from the moment you step into the room. Inspired by the layout of pre-war buildings, elevated ceilings are featured, allowing the interior layout to provide the perfect proportions of the house, with unmistakable triple views of the Hudson River, Manhattan and Central Park.

Customized billiards make your party difficult to get boring, and there are even private dining rooms available.


Inspired by the best private membership clubs in the world, 200 Amsterdam offers a stay-at-home map embassy for all ages. The so-called “live until old age learns old age”, from childhood to adulthood to old age, cannot stop the thirst for knowledge. 200 Amsterdam takes note of this legacy of wisdom and wishes to pass it on.

Make every home impressive, with a sensible separation of entertaining and sleeping spaces. The living room provides multiple lighting from the corner, allowing people to enjoy a unique view bathed in natural light.

The kitchen at 200 Amsterdam features top quality Italian Calacatta marble island, nickel hardware with satin finish, white oak custom cabinetry, appliances from Sub Zero, Wolf and Miele. The long and straight private space makes the line of sight focus, and the chef at home also has a lot to play.

After careful consideration, the master bathroom at 200 Amsterdam is clad in marble, and its pure beauty is reflected in this timeless design. Corrugated marble slabs, intricately patterned marble floors and polished nickel hardware complete the tone. The staggered view of the lights separates the bathroom naturally in function. The enhanced lighting in front of the makeup scene makes the makeup look more natural when going out, and the diffused lighting makes the space more delicate.

200 Amsterdam All units use hand-cut white oak floors imported from the south of France, refer to the design of pre-war buildings, and are arranged in a V-shaped herringbone pattern. Compared with ordinary floor coverings, fishbone splicing requires very high ground flatness; compared with the previous herringbone splicing, uniformly cut joints require higher labor requirements and wood board requirements. And because of these details, everyone who steps on the ground can enjoy the warmest texture. And this seemingly simple setup turned out to be a work of art.

High-end luxury is often not built at a high price, but forged from countless details.

Summary is delighted that a detail-laden, art-first building like 200 Amsterdam has won a 3-year legal tug of war without cutting down its iconic penthouse and crown structure.

Manhattan has never lacked luxury buildings, and what people need more behind the luxury buildings are the ubiquitous details in the home and the cultural heritage that can be provided to future generations. The story of Mother Meng’s three relocations has penetrated deeply into the hearts of every Chinese. Chinese parents never skimp on money, time and energy for their children’s future. Living in the Upper West Side is also a guarantee for their children’s future.
