What It’s Like To Live In A $95-Million Penthouse 1,396 Feet Above New York City

By | January 9, 2016

432 Park Avenue – this is the address of the New York skyline’s newest ornament and of the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere. Towering up to 1,396 ft, the skyscraper offers 104 apartments at 30,000 sq ft each with 12.5 ft ceilings, 10 x 10 ft windows, and prices ranging from $16,95 million to $82,5 million.The breathtaking condo tower was designed by Rafael Viñoly and took three years to construct. It is situated in the center of Manhattan, and the upper penthouses offer a view of all of New York City: from the Hudson to the East River, from the Bronx to Brooklyn, and from Central Park to the Atlantic Ocean. The building also features a private restaurant with an outdoor terrace, a 75ft swimming pool/spa, a screening room/ performance venue, climate-controlled wine cellars, a children’s playroom and a board room.

The skyscraper will welcome its first residents next year, so if you’re looking for a nice little place in NY and have a solid bank account, you’d better hurry, as the penthouses are going like hot cakes.

From this height, the rest of the city looks tiny.

432 Park has already altered the New York City skyline. It towers above the other new construction on 57th Street, nicknamed “Billionaires’ Row” for the abundance of luxury condos cropping up there.

And to the south, views of the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and One World Trade can all be enjoyed from this free-standing tub.

Designer Deborah Berke took a geometric approach. The huge windows are in a straight line from the front door, making the most of the apartment’s perch above the city.

The master suite has separated his and hers bathrooms. Looking north from the marble-covered shower, you’ll get a peek of Central Park and the Upper East Side.

The kitchens will be outfitted with sleek marble countertops and stainless-steel appliances.

But the kitchen’s best feature has to be this 10-foot-long marble breakfast bar framed against the window. Just imagine enjoying your morning coffee here, with all of Manhattan sprawled out below you.
