In a move that may be strategic (or not), Qatar has purchased four apartments at the Zeckendorf-developed 50 United Nations Plaza (h/t TRD). What makes the buy of the $8.125 million 19B, $10.2 million 33B, $8.5 million 27B, and $19.5 million Penthouse 35 so confounding is that they absolutely cannot be combined; that is unless the country plans on shelling out for all of the building's B-line apartments spanning floors 19 through 35. Either way, it looks like the country just plans on dominating the slow-to-sell Midtown East tower in earnest.
