50 UN Plaza

East 46th Street, New York, NY, USA

50 United Nations Plaza is a 43-story residential skyscraper located across from the United Nation’s Headquarters in NYC. An iconic addition to the Manhattan skyline, it was designed by celebrated architects Foster + Partners and developed by Zeckendorf Development and Global Holdings. 50 UN Plaza was completed in 2015 and includes 88 apartments, all of which feature at least one coveted corner exposure and deep bay window that capture an abundance of natural light while framing stunning views of the East River and Manhattan skyline where the Chrysler Building; the Empire State Building; and the United Nations Sculpture Garden, General Assembly, and Secretariat buildings take center stage.

The building was named for its proximity to the UN and the family connection to William Zeckendorf Sr., the real estate developer who offered the UN the site along the East River in 1946, and to Trygve Lie, the first UN Secretary General.
