The scenery might vary from the outside in these different cities, but the height of luxury inside these penthouses is practically beyond comparison.
432 Park Avenue Penthouse
Docketed to be Manhattan’s tallest occupied building space, Harry Macklowe’s 432 Park Avenue prepares for completion in 2015. The 84-story glass-and-aluminum tower’s full floor penthouse begins at just over 1,200 feet high and will encompass 8,255 square feet of living space. With six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, separate dining room, eat in kitchen, private elevator landing, library, windows in almost every room, and a living room with space for a full grand piano.

Extravagance which seems almost fictional, the penthouse of the Odeon Tower in Monaco, incidentally the second smallest country in the world, is positioned to bring in more than a quarter-billion dollars or more. Of the double skyscraper’s seventy private luxury residences, the five floor “sky penthouse” is planned out at 35,500 square feet of space with a private swimming pool with a water slide. The penthouse will boast floor-to-ceiling windows, and panoramic views of the sea from private terraces.
Currently the most expensive occupied penthouse in the world, One Hyde Park in Knightsbridge, London sits atop a major retail and residential complex near Picadilly Circus. The iconic building’s design contains four pavilions with angled architecture and incredible views over the city. Records indicate that a three-floor penthouse, with over 8,000 square feet, was purchased in 2011 for over $210 million. In addition to the expected private glass elevator, five bedrooms, private balconies overhanging Hyde Park, and other living spaces, the penthouses at One Hyde Park also include bullet proof glass and panic rooms.
