Sales at Zeckendorf Development’s 50 United Nations Plaza kicked off in 2013, but it looks like the developers were holding out on the building’s glitziest unit – a duplex penthouse with a private outdoor pool asking $70 million.

Zeckendorf and partner Global Holdings, led by Eyal Ofer, opted to wait until construction finished on the 88-unit condo tower, at 345 East 46th Street in Turtle Bay, before listing the penthouse, which features four bedrooms plus staff quarters and a 525-square-foot Outdoor Terrace.

The 9,700-square-foot duplex, located on the top two floors of the 43-story building, can be combined with the 5,900-square-foot, $29.3 million full-floor unit below for a total price just under $100 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The apartment has views of the East River and Queensboro Bridge, as well as a heated, 34-foot-long pool on the north-facing Outdoor Terrace. British architects Foster + Partners designed 50 United Nations Plaza – their first U.S. residential project – as well as the interior finishes.

The Permanent Mission of the State of Qatar bought four apartments at the building for approximately $45 million earlier this year, The Real Deal reported. [WSJ]Rey Mashayekhi
