Rent of $60,000 a month for an exclusive and exquisite penthouse atop a gleaming, 76-storey art sculpture, which is also one of the tallest residential structures in the U.S. at 870 feet, is surely an appealing offer for super-renters, who can actually afford to purchase most expensive homes but chose to rent the desirable space instead. Renter, who will afford an annual cash outlay of $720,000 will live atop this Frank Gehry-designed landmark penthouse at the beautiful glass and metal New York by Gehry skyscraper on manhattan’s Spruce Street, offering unrivalled and breathtaking views of the New York City from its giant windows. For an instant, rent of $60,000 might seem a little shocking to some. But we have also earlier seen that the Lafayette Street townhouse in SoHo, Manhattan asking rent of $100,000, the Astor Suite at the Plaza in New York asking for $165,000 a month to become one of the most expensive rental home, the Upper East side mansion for $165,000 and the apartment in the Waldrof Astoria tower on 50th East Street commanding $135,000 a month.
Location: The New York by Gehry building on Spruce Street Manhattan, New York.
The three penthouses on the 76th floor available for rent in the iconic building are the highest residences in whole of North America, and among the only individual homes designed by the world-famous Pritzker Prize-winning architect, Frank Gehry.
For $60,000, one will get to live higher than the helicopters, as said by Cliff Finn, the president of New Development Marketing at Citi Habitats, the company in charge of renting the units.
The two 3-bedroom penthouses will cost a rent of $45,000 a month, while the 4-bedroom unit will set tenants back by $60,000 per month.
The penthouses also come with some state-of-the-art facilities which include a remote controlled lighting system, and marble and limestone flooring. Further, residents will also have access to the skyscraper’s plush amenities including an indoor pool, baby grand piano, personal pilates rooms, multiple seating area, spa suite and grilling terrace.
The penthouse offers 360 degree views of the Woolworth Building, the iconic Statue of Liberty, the Hudson and East Rivers, and the stunning Manhattan skyline.
From the bathtub in the penthouse, one can see the Catskill Mountains, located 100-miles north-northwest of New York City.
A view from the west penthouse looking north shows the skyscraper exterior.
And, as one washes one’s face in the sink can see the rising of grand One World Trade and the Woolworth Building.
