With urban real estate in hot demand, sometimes there’s nowhere to build but up.
While New York boasts five of the top 10 tallest residential buildings in the country, Chicago is close behind with four.
The West, on the other hand, tends to keep its homes a little more down to earth. The tallest residential building on the West Coast, the tower of the L.A. Live entertainment complex — which also includes two hotels, several restaurants, the Grammy Museum, two theaters and ESPN broadcasting studios — tops out at 653 feet, 195 feet shorter than Two Liberty Place, the 10th-tallest residential building in the country.
These buildings don’t skimp on amenities for their residents. Swimming pools and fitness centers are standard features, and several have maid and room service.
Prices in these luxurious towers can soar just as high as the buildings themselves. The penthouse in New York City’s One57 sold last year for $100.5 million, making it the most expensive residence ever sold in the Big Apple.
