The cheapest units are the tower suites, which occupy the 5th to 58th floors, and start in the high $300,000s for a small bachelor unit. The top floor penthouse suite, has a $18 million price tag. Included in the building’s plan are three floors of retail space, a gym spanning the entire 4th floor, and a subway level food court connected to College Station.

  2. An ambitious project with a pretty high price tag for housing!

  3. It would be interesting to find out who will be living in that penthouse. This is such a nice picture with just the right composition to show the height of the building.

  6. Hmmmm... but how will the lousy subway system deal with the thousands of people from this building when it can hardly hold the population the city already has? This kind of living doesn't appeal to me at all...

  9. I like the perspective, though I imagine it could be a little dizzying. I prefer to live closer to the ground. And, for the money, can think of better housing situations than a small bachelor unit.

  10. 18 mil is just a drop in the bucket...hahaha...i cannot even imagine someone spending that kind of money. you are right about cold weather and retirement. at first i was depressed, and then i realized how lucky i was...don’t have to answer to anyone, can do as i please, and i don’t even know what day it is some of the time. my love for quilting takes up the better parts of my days...it is heaven.

  11. Sounds like it'll be a prime piece of real estate - I'm sure there will be enough takers. Ah, big cities and their big real estate prices!

  12. Yikes! I must confess, I am not a high-rise condominium kind of guy. But, the world has space for all sorts of people, I suppose.
