Designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, this stunning building Offers expansive 360 degree views of Manhattan, the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty, the penthouse also features 14 foot ceilings in a successful attempt to match the grandeur of the panoramic view. Each window seems to be a framed version of the city as the sun passes through the sky and the day progresses. A 4,400 square foot terrace allows the owner to enjoy unobstructed views of the Big Apple and the two fireplaces comfortably draws one back inside. With unparalleled design this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home has sleek terrazzo floors and a one of a kind layout designed for entertaining! The apartment’s white-on-white decor may be uninspiring, but it’s hard to complain with the Manhattan skyline for wallpaper. This place does look fabulous! But as a normal homeowner, I just wonder, who clean those windows, they are literally everywhere. [source]
