NEW YORK | 551 West 21st Street | 88m | 290ft | 19 fl | Com

The starchitecture district forming around the High Line Park is getting a new addition:

Behold, the $50M PH & Sky Pool of Foster's Chelsea Condos



Quote:
A few renderings and pricing have been revealed for the uppermost penthouse at the Norman Foster-designed 551 West 21st Street. True to the hype, one of the building's three extravagant penthouses will feature a 61-foot-long lap pool as part of its 4,000-square-feet of private outdoor space. The rather rare outdoor amenity is on a terrace overlooking the Hudson River, the Observer has learned.

That facade looks a bit like 432Park, with those square windows and the concrete.
