Kalimian Tower Quiety Soars On 66th & Amsterdam



The glass tower at 66th and Amsterdam has soared to it's final height of 470 feet or 42 stories, and is about 2/3rds glassed up. The future rental tower with retail at the base is located in an enviable location behind the newly revamped Lincoln Center. The location was bought by A&R Kalimian five years ago for $74 Million. 310 units are expected, and it would appear that the building should be completed by mid to late 2010.

  1. I'm happy that they're filling in that space in Lincoln Village. Hurray to a return of the streetwall on that stretch of 10th avenue.

    Nice (big) addition, but once again, has anyone thought about the impact the building will have on PS199? Guaranteed that in the marketing material it will note that it is zoned for one of NYC's best Public Schools. There are 7 Kindergarten classes this year. 3 years ago, there were only 3.

    The district needs a new school!

  3. I believe they are already wait-listing or denying students access to PS199 due to the overcrowding issue.

  4. It's a tough year for the public school system. i know that they are waitlisting at ps 290 on the UES and I think they are doing the same for ps 6.

  6. I've been there twice and I think the Kalimian tower is one of the best in that city because this kind of Towers are generally built to take advantage of their height, and can stand alone on the ground, and this is the nicest characteristic about it. 23jj
