The penthouse of Norman Foster's 50 United Nations Plaza has been a thing since building reps confirmed that the nearly 10,000-square-foot apartment would have a private pool. To be fair, that was in 2013, right before the aquatic amenity started popping up left, right, and center in pricey Manhattan apartments. But the pool-touting penthouse in the Norman Foster-designed tower has finally arrived on the market, asking $70 million. The Wall Street Journal has the deets about its interior, saying that the duplex penthouse has four bedrooms plus staff quarters, a 525-square-foot north-facing terrace, and a 10,000-pound stainless steel spiral staircase that leads up to the 43rd floor, where the pool will be accessible either through a master bedroom sitting area or media room. The 34-foot-long pool will be surrounded by an ipe wood deck. For $100 million, the duplex penthouse can be combined with another penthouse that will ask $29.95 million to make a nearly 16,000-square-foot dwelling.
