It’s going to cost you at least $2.5 million to live at 45 East 22nd Street. In a recent profile on the up-and-coming building, the Times revealed pricing and some juicy details about what’s planned for glassy tower. One-bedrooms averaging 1,074 square feet will be going for 2.5 mill, while the penthouse may go for as much as $42.5 million. The paper reports that no floor in the condo tower will have more than two units, and everything from the 55th floor up will be full-floor pads. The penthouse meanwhile will claim the 64th and 65th floors with an impressive 7,000 square feet of living space. The lower floors (i.e. everything below the 9th) will be dedicated to off-the-hook amenities like a lounge, billiards rooms, a yoga studio, kids’ room, pool, golf simulator—basically everything you’d expect an ultra luxurious building to have.

The Continuum Company-developed, KPF-designed tower is poised to trump nearby One Madison by 150 feet when complete. The cantilevering structure will sit on a site of just 75 feet wide, expanding as it rises 777 feet to a floor plate of 125 feet at its 65th floor. Construction is expected to commence February 2015 with a move-in date slated for December 2016. Sales are anticipated to launch this month.

It seems like every week a new residential skyscraper is being announced in New York City, just earlier this week the New York Times noted that a partnership between Steven Witkoff and Harry Macklowe is moving ahead with a redevelopment of the Park Lane Hotel at 36 Central Park West with an 850-foot tower.

With the mind-boggling amount of residential spires poised to pierce the sky, here’s a quick rundown of the tallest of the tall–the spindly bunch set to soar higher than 700 feet. Keep in mind that just 30 years ago, the tallest residence in the city was perched atop the 664-foot Trump Tower. Today, buildings are on the drawing board for more than twice that height.
