Living High Life in City

There are many Skyscrapers  in New York City, like Empire State Building. But most of them are office building. How many super residence Skyscrapers do you know in NYC?
In New York, " the current chart topper at 870 feet is New York by Gehry at 8 Spruce Street, a rental building in the Financial District that was designed by Frank Gehry, with rent up to 60,000 a month."
There will be another building coming soon with even higher up---1000feet. This building is called One 57, located on 57th street with icons view of Central Park, Hudson River, East River and so on.
And the market for super high Skyscrapers is going well this year. "In February, a penthouse on Central Park West sold for $88 million. At One57, the 89th and 90th floor duplex penthouse recently sold for $90 million to an unnamed buyer; another large unit on the 78th and 79th floors, known as the Winter Garden, is in contract for an undisclosed sum. It is asking $115 million. A 76th story penthouse at New York by Gehry hit the rental market a few weeks ago with an asking price of $60,000 per month."
Foreign buyers contribute large amount of luxury housing sales in Manhattan. For example,  at least 10 units in One57 have gone into contract with Chinese buyers. Will there be another booming of Real Estate market in Manhattan? Will see.
