Willie Geist spied home shopping in UWS’ priciest new tower

TV personality Willie Geist, a co-host of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC and anchor of “Sunday Today,” was spied touring condos at 200 Amsterdam Ave., sources tell Gimme.

The 688-foot-tall new development tower has had its ups and downs with the city, where activists want to keep supertalls out of human-scaled neighborhoods like the Upper West Side.

At one point, a judge ruled that the 52-story tower was built higher than zoning allowed — and ordered the top 20 floors to be demolished.

But the developers prevailed.

A 47th-floor penthouse, asking $17.5 million, went into contract to a “local buyer” last month. 

Now two new penthouse duplexes are about to hit the market.

The first, on the 51st and 52nd floors, is asking $40 million, while the second, on the 49th and 50th floors, is asking $38 million, Gimme Shelter can reveal.

“Morning Joe” must be paying Geist pretty well if he’s able to swing a penthouse unit like the one above at the new 200 Amsterdam development.

Interiors are designed by CetraRuddy, and based on the Big Apple’s classic pre-war residences.

Each penthouse duplex is close to 6,500 square feet and features four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two powder rooms and close to 650 square feet of “sky terraces.”

There’s also 116-foot-long, 20-foot-tall floor-to-ceiling windows, and each penthouse features a glass and brushed-nickel staircase connecting both floors.

The lowest-priced unit currently on the market is $3 million for a one-bedroom. 

“My wife and I walked around the construction site a couple of years ago out of curiosity as the huge building was going up outside the window of our rental apartment,” Geist told the Post. “We knew that one visit was the closest we’d ever get to living there. I wish them better luck in filling the building. We’ll wave from our rental once people finally start moving in someday.”
