Earlier this year, the highest residence in the tallest tower on the Upper East Side hit the market. This week, new photos of the penthouse at 180 East 88th Street were released, showing off the impressive architecture of the five-bedroom home, which was listed for $33,000,000 in March. On full display are the apartment’s stunning sculptural staircase, dramatic archways, brass-framed windows, and private outdoor space with panoramic views.

The triplex penthouse measures more than 5,500 square feet and is topped by an expansive rooftop terrace with views of Central Park from the highest elevation on the Upper East Side. A spiral staircase leads to the bedrooms on the upper floor, while a private elevator reaches all three floors.

On this floor, there are two living rooms, a dining area, and an expansive windowed kitchen custom designed by Molteni & C Dada with brass and marble details. A massive island centers the space, which also has a more casual breakfast nook. The kitchen is decked out with Gaggenau appliances, including two ovens and two dishwashers.

The corner great room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, a fireplace, and access to the set-back terrace. Also on this level is a bedroom, a den, and a laundry room.

The remaining four bedrooms can be found on the upper level. The primary suite takes up an entire wing of this floor, with an amazing ensuite bathroom surrounded by glass that has luxury details like radiant heat flooring, mosaic tiled walls, marble and oak accents, and views from a balcony.

Found on the other side of this floor, the secondary bedrooms share a huge loggia terrace that offers sweeping views. The penthouse is topped by a roughly 2,100-square-foot roof terrace with a gas fireplace.
