The top penthouse at 551 West 21st Street comes with a rooftop pool and a $50 million price tag.

The Norman Foster-designed unit, which also boasts 4,000 square feet of outdoor space, is framed with gold windows, the New York Observer reported. Other high-end accoutrements in the 19-story building’s penthouse units, which start at $35 million, include double-sided wood-burning fireplaces, kitchens with Gaggenau barbecue and Teppanyaki grills, cooling and heating drawers, 12-foot ceilings, oak herringbone floors and free-standing bath tubs.

Developer Scott Resnick also decked out the building with a storm-resistant redesign following Hurricane Sandy.

The property’s other 41 units are priced between $5.75 million and $17.5 million, the Observer reported. [NYO]Julie Strickland
