Have you ever wanted amazing views of Central Park that feel like you are floating in a cloud? Now the opportunity is yours if you have $250 million to spare. The Central Park Tower recently put its penthouse triplex up for sale and has set a record for being the most expensive in the U.S. This isn’t the only record they claim. It is the tallest condominium tower in the world.

Standing at 1,550 feet tall, it is about 300 feet taller than the Empire State Building. The triplex is located on floors 129 to 131. There are 17,545 square feet of interior living space, including seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two kitchens, three powder rooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, 30-foot-tall ceilings, and a spiral staircase. Start your mornings by enjoying a coffee on the 1,433-square-foot terrace overlooking Manhattan. If you can make the price point, you would be a record holder for making the most expensive deal, beating out hedge-fund billionaire Ken Griffin, who bought a property just across the street from the Central Park Tower for $238 million. After all, New York is always the place to be.

The glassy exterior of the Central Park Tower condominium offers a sleek, modern design that makes a statement without completely taking over the Manhattan skies. It is in one of the most exclusive corridors in the city, and the world, the Billionaires’ Row. Developer Gary Barnett is trying to make this condominium even more exclusive by building a private club within the building, which will feature billiards, a swimming pool, and a fitness center. Additionally, the first flagship Nordstrom store in New York City will be located at the skyscraper’s base. The architecture firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture designed the condominium tower, which also boasts buildings in China and Dubai on its resume.

From the penthouse, the lucky future owners will also be able to see the unobstructed views of Central Park, the Hudson, and East rivers and get major bragging rights at their dinner parties. Living a life of luxury comes at a high price, and this one is higher than the rest. Would you be willing to pay?
