Judge: New York Skyscraper is Too Tall and Must Remove Approximately 20 Floors

New York, we have a problem. A New York judge has ruled that a New York skyscraper is too tall and must be shortened. The building, 200 Amsterdam, which is close to Lincoln Center and Central Park, was to be 55 stories tall and would have been the tallest in the neighborhood. However, the judge has ruled that the permit for the development should not have been issued and that the city should revoke the building permit and remove all floors that exceed the zoning limit.

The problem is that the building is now at 668 feet and 51 stories. It appears that approximately 20 floors will need to be removed.

You can read more about the lawsuit here, including seeing photographs about what floors must be removed.
