George and Amal Clooney are expanding their property portfolio with an off-plan apartment designed by British starchitect Norman Foster in Midtown Manhattan.
The Hollywood star and his human rights lawyer wife have plumped for a high-floor flat in sleek 63-storey One Hundred East Fifty Third (pictures below), adjacent to Mies van der Rohe’s famed Seagram Building.
Lord Foster, the brains behind The Gherkin and Wembley Stadium, has incorporated a gourmet marketplace in his New York tower, along with a fine dining restaurant to be run by star chef Joël Robuchon.
Other luxury services include a library, a 60ft sunlit swimming pool, a wellness facility, Pilates/ballet and yoga rooms, a sauna, and a spa treatment centre. The Clooneys are thought to have paid £12 million.
