The 200 Amsterdam development site, backing up to the PS 199 playground

LANDMARK WEST! has taken action to send letters to Mayor Bill de Blasio, Comptroller Scott Stringer, and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman calling their attention to deficiencies in the NYC Department of Buildings approval of the skyscraper planned for 200 Amsterdam Avenue.  At 668′, this would be the tallest building in Manhattan north of Midtown.

Thanks to a groundswell of support from the community, we’ve succeeded in raising funds to continue scrutinizing the legality of the tower, expanding on the Zoning Challenge initiated by the Committee for Environmentally Sound Development.
But, there’s a tough road ahead, and LW! will continue building a war chest to stay nimble, recruit expert assistance, and fight this project on all cylinders.
