551W21 Construction Watch; 1080 Amsterdam 95% Leased

WEST CHELSEA—A tipster passed along this photo, taken from the Pier 59 driving range, that appears to show the Norman Foster-designed 551 West 21st Street, known officially as 551W21, rising over West Chelsea. Once completed, the 19-story building will feature a $50 million penthouse with a sky pool. So just look at the sky above the building and imagine swimming in a pool there.
