Most of us will only ever see the outside of 432 Park Avenue, the 1396-foot-high skyscraper that towers over New York City’s Central Park. But thanks to some new renderings of its extravagant amenities, we can share a first glimpse inside the latest jewel of Manhattan’s real estate landscape.

The 96-story building—which is the tallest residential complex in the Western Hemisphere—was designed by Uruguayan star architect Rafael Viñoly. The pencil-thin edifice is strictly for the super rich, with some units renting for the not-so-low price of $49,000 a month while the penthouse went to a Saudi business magnate for a staggering $95 million.

Residents are also asked to pay a steep $10,000 monthly fee for the amenities, and it’s easy to see why. Occupying three full levels, they’ll have access to entertainment, leisure, and wellness areas that stretch across 30,000 square feet of pure opulence. There’s a sprawling 75-foot indoor pool, an 18-seat screening room equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system, and a mini spa run by the fitness center design gurus at The Wright Fit.

Residents can also relax in the tower’s billiards room and library, or take classes in the in-house yoga studio. But perhaps the most attractive feature is the resident-only restaurant with fare from the Michelin-starred chef Shaun Hergatt. And for those unwilling to leave the comfort of their own home, yes, there’s room service. Being rich sounds fun, doesn’t it?

What do you think? Does living 1396 feet in the sky appeal to you?
