Architects Herzog & de Meuron’s uber-luxury high rise condo has seen record sales prices. With over $900M in sales and over 80 percent of the building sold already, one may ask whether New Yorkers are clamoring for the spectacular views, or the unique theater experience on the ninth and 10th floors. The 25-seat theater, outfitted with custom reclining chairs, lets residents peer over the city’s streets until the curtains close off for high definition projections.
Location: Tribeca
Floors: 60
Units: 145
Beyond the big screen: Where to begin? Besides the stunning modern design and 75-foot lap pool, there’s that sculpture by renowned artist Anish Kapoor at the base.
