Rent the tallest US / New York Penthouse for $60k per month

Is high lifestyle in the same category with living at huge heights? It seems like there is a connection between these two, as proven by this penthouse in the tallest residential building in the entire United States of America. It is available for rent, for a mind-boggling $60,000 per month, or $720,000 per year.

The apartment is located on Spruce Street in Manhattan, at 870 feet in the air, atop a skyscraper. It was penned down by Pritzker Prize-winning Frank Gehry and boasts with stylishness and luxury. In fact, there are a total of three penthouses available for rent, all on the 76th floor of the building.

The main 4-bedroom penthouse apartment is the one with the price we’ve stated above, and, if your finances are a bit lower than that, there are the two other 3-bedroom penthouses, each rentable for $45,000 per month, or $540,000 per year.

Regardless of choice, they all provide all-around views of New York City, the Atlantic Ocean, the Woolworth building, the Tappan Zee Bridge, the One World Trade building, the Hudson and East Rivers and ultimately the massive Statue of Liberty. Furthermore, it’s not all about views, it’s also about the quality of living – and the penthouses prove to be rather good in this field.

Boasting with a huge level of sophistication, they feature limestone and marble floors, kitchens with Liebherr refrigerators, wine refrigerators, wall mounted pot fillers, warming drawers, double wall ovens, 6-burner Miele cooktops with vented hoods and Sub-Zero icemakers, bathrooms with radiant heat flooring glass enclosed walk-in showers, with body spray and rainforest head sets, as well as Toto Eco Nexus toilets, wall mounted towel warmers and Duravit soaking tubs with integrated air systems. In addition, the apartments include multi-zoned lighting schemes and remote controlled motorized solar shades.

The 4-bedroom penthouse is actually the highest home in the entire Western Hemisphere, providing a total of 3,800 square feet of living space that includes grilling terrace, baby grand piano, spa suite, private Pilates rooms, indoor pool, plush amenities and an additional studio area that can easily serves as staff quarters.

The President of New Development Marketing at Citi Habitats ironically declares that “you’re higher than the helicopters here up here. There are the best apartments in the top rental building in the world by the top architect in the world”. The aforementioned firm is responsible with the units’ rental, as reported by New York Daily News.
