Foster + Partners has revealed that its new Chelsea condominium's uppermost penthouse will be sweetened with a splendid sky pool, occupying a small portion of its 4,000 square-foot private outdoor area.
The over-the-top amenity, which spans 61 feet, will be nestled within a stunning terrace overlooking the Hudson. The posh property is reportedly now on the market for a cool million . . . times fifty.
The listing is one of three spectacular penthouses at 555 West 21st Street, a luxury project that will be comprised of 44 lavish apartments upon its completion next year.
The suave building, which will boast an exquisite double height lobby accented with a prismatic wall; full-time doorman, porter, valet and concierge service; and a gated drive court, marks a new standard in Manhattan real estate, with its "cheapest" apartment priced at roughly six million dollars.
The awe-inspiring structure will be storm-ready to boot; it will be smartly armed with a waterproof wall of concrete sheathed in ornamental metal and granite stone, which will rise five or six feet above curbed level in case of a Hurricane Sandy-repeat. In addition, a gas-powered emergency generator will sit on its roof, poised 19 stories safely above its flood-prone basement.
