Penthouse at Zeckendorfs’ 50 U.N. Plaza to ask $100M



Quote:
The Zeckendorfs will ask $100 million for the top penthouse at their 88-unit condominium building, 50 United Nations Plaza, currently under construction in Turtle Bay. The 15,597-square-foot triplex at the Norman Foster-designed building is slated to have 14 bedrooms and 13 full bathrooms.

The apartment also boasts 1,500 square feet of outdoor space and a 10,000-pound stainless steel staircase leading to an infinity pool, the New York Post reported. The building – which should be complete by December 2014 — is being developed by the Zeckendorfs as and Eyal Ofer’s Global Holdings. It is Foster’s first residential project in the country.

Condos in the building, at First Avenue and 46th Street, will start at $2.8 million, as previously reported. The developers paid $160 million for the site in 2007.

Who wants to pay $100 million to live on First Avenue? I guess we'll see if it sells at this price...

Agreed, people that will buy here does not walk in the streets in NYC so being on 1st ave will not be an issue. They have staff to do their grocery shopping, walk their dogs and chauffeurs to take them anywhere they please in the city (even if it's 1 block away)! Lol..

The main requirement being in the city is to have a castle in the sky with great views. This will give great views.

An OK building, but not one of Foster's better efforts. He's very bold in many parts of the world, but for some reason seems to tone it down in North America.
