There is nothing that screams luxury living more than an address with a Penthouse unit. Living high above the city, with views that rival a bird, in units equipped with higher ceilings, upgraded finishes and, of course, all sorts of fun perks! Those perks can range from complimentary gym memberships, to valet parking, to private use of luxury cars so they certainly can be enticing, but not every Penthouse means the top of the top! Some buildings create their Penthouse units throughout the top several floors so make sure you double check if your top priority is no footsteps above you! We are constantly watching the city boom with new developments, so let’s take an insiders look at these ultra luxurious homes!
The Seaport area, which has been completely transformed over the last several years from the land of parking lots to a sea of skyscrapers, many of them residential. Pier 4, opening this spring, has paid special attention to their penthouse units. Though the building stands only 9 floors high, most units have completely unobstructed views of the harbor, and their penthouses capitalize on these incredible views with large private roof decks.
