432 Park Avenue – At 1,396 feet, this is the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere

Buying a house in New York is a privilege for many. The city that never sleeps has some of the most beautiful and exclusive residential developments in the world. As far as catastrophically huge, towering houses go, the 432 Park Avenue is pretty darn impressive. At 1,396 feet, the tower rises above the icons of the Manhattan skyline, surpassing the Empire State Building (1,250) and Chrysler Building (1,046) in height, and becoming the highest rooftop in New York City.

The residential building by CIM Group and Macklowe Properties is so big that it practically has its own gravitational force. Designed by architect Rafael Vinoly, the soaring tower is a perfect square of architectural concrete featuring oversized 10-foot-by-10-foot windows that flood the residences with natural light and frame the unsurpassed views of New York City, from Central Park to the Atlantic Ocean and Lower Manhattan to Connecticut.

Starting from $16.95 million, the tower houses an exclusive offering of 104 luxurious condominium residences that begin 356′ above the ground. In addition to expansive layouts, the residences – designed by Deborah Berke – boast extraordinarily tall 12.5-foot finished ceiling heights, solid oak flooring, Italian marble countertops and the finest interior finishes and appliances.

Home owners will experience exclusive five-star building services and 30,000 square feet of amenities, including a private restaurant; outdoor garden for dining and events; spa and fitness center with sauna, steam and massage rooms; 75-foot indoor swimming pool; library; lounge; billiards room; screening room and performance venue; children’s playroom; and boardroom.

Residents will also have access to in-suite catering, concierge, 24-hour doorman, and valet parking services. They will also have the ability to purchase climate-controlled wine cellars, office suites, staff apartments, and storage as a complement to their residence.

The residential building will welcome its first residents next year.
