Penthouse @ 50 United Nations Plaza
Welcome to Penthouse 42, the crown jewel of 50 United Nations Plaza. This nearly 10,000 SF penthouse home fully emcompasses the top two floors of the building, providing breathtaking views, privacy and prestige at 50 United Nations Plaza, the ultimate global address.
Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects Foster + Partners and delivered by New York’s legendary Zeckendorf Development and Global Holdings, this one-of-a-kind Duplex Penthouse combines nearly 10,000 square feet of interior living space with two extraordinary outdoor spaces; one a large terrace ideally situated off the main living area, the other a more than 30-foot outdoor swimming pool and pool deck. This striking, infinity edge pool and deck links the primary bedroom lounge and a large entertainment room, featuring a gas fireplace and separate catering kitchen.
A grand entry foyer and expansive 75-foot living, dining and entertaining area greet you upon arrival to this incomparable trophy home. Deep bay windows of floor-to-ceiling glass and soaring thirteen-foot ceilings provide panoramic views of the East River and Manhattan skyline, the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, the United Nations and beyond. A two-story glass wall provides a cinematic backdrop of the Manhattan skyline for the stainless steel floating staircase joining the 42nd and 43rd floors. This duplex home includes a private interior elevator to navigate from one floor to the next with ease.
In addition to the main primary bedroom suite, which occupies half of the 43rd floor, there are three oversized bedroom suites, two staff rooms and seven and a half baths. The large, windowed chef’s kitchen is appointed with Miele and Sub-zero appliances and custom Poliform lacquer cabinetry, making this home ideal for large scale entertaining.
50 United Nations Plaza is accessible via gated entry which opens onto a sweeping private motor court landscaped by M. Paul Friedberg and Partners, and provides an extraordinary level of privacy, security, and beauty. The full-time staff of door attendants, concierges and Resident Manager stand ready to assist while valets park vehicles in the private underground garage. The building amenities are highlighted by a state-of-the-art gym managed by The Wright Fit, a 75 foot swimming pool, children’s playroom, and conference room. There is also a full spa featuring a steam room, sauna, and a massage treatment room.
