As The Real Deal reports, “Even the British royal family is getting into the business of pieds-a-terres in New York.” Queen Elizabeth herself has picked up a $7.9 million apartment at 50 United Nations Plaza. City records released today list the buyer of the three-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot residence as “Her Majesty the Queen in Right of New Zealand.”

The listing says the apartment is perfect for large-scale entertaining, as it boasts a gracious foyer and 15-foot-long living/dining area, as well as a high-end kitchen with a Foster Partners-designed island, white lacquer Poliform cabinetry, and honed absolute back granite countertops.

50 UN Plaza was appropriately designed by starchitect Lord Norman Foster, whom the Queen knighted 25 years ago. Here’s hoping she brings the grandkids for a visit…

    Great post. If I had to pick something for the Queen, I don’t know that it would be this modern, because some of her other properties/castles seem to be more traditional. However, that might be exactly why she decided to go with something so different. If you are looking for your own pied-a-terre in NYC, hit on the previous link for the Sutton Court. It is at 417 East 57th, which isn’t too far from the United Nations or the Queen’s new abode, which makes for interesting neighbors. Of course, it also comes with lots of windows, high thread count sheets, full kitchen, work out room, front desk staff and more. This is a nice option.
