That is right. A canal house would also be my choice in that case, most of all due to its location.

The most expensive one i could find in Mexico City was an apartment on the St. Regis Reforma tower. At a price of $1,224,020, you get a 189 m² apartment with view of the Angel of independence and the entire Reforma Av. Price per square meter comes out to $6,476.32 m².

The building is the one right in the middle of the picture.

Talking about Mexico...

The most expensive apartment in Monterrey is the Penthouse of a tower named "Sofia" designed by the famous architect Cesar Pelli.

It would have 960 m2 and a cost of 3.8M USD (Almost 4,000 USD per square meter)

This is the floorplan:

Second floor first, then the main floor



The tower:



...And the view it would have

Currently, the most expensive unit in Bangkok was sold at $16,000,000. Its a penthouse at The Ritz Carlton Residences Bangkok.















SHOW UNITS

Contemporary Modern Style















Contemporary Classic















For Immediate Release 7 February 2013
PACE registers record sales for MahaNakhon – highest sales in one month since launch
 Bht 836 million of residences sold in one month – highest ever
 Sells highest price penthouse ever in Thailand at Bht 480 million
 Hong Kong Roadshow generates Bht 240 million in sales
 To increase prices 5% on 1st March 2013
Bangkok (7 February 2013) – PACE Development Corporation Plc, (Thursday 7 February), announced that it has sold within one week more than Bht 836 million of its super luxury Ritz-Carlton branded residences at the MahaNakhon mixed-use development being built next to Chongnonsi BTS Station between Silom and Sathorn Roads and which is set to become a Bangkok landmark as the city‟s tallest building.
Mr. Sorapoj Techakraisri, Chief Executive Officer, PACE Development Corporation Plc, said, “It has been a very strong start to the year and we are seeing a surge in interest in super luxury property in Bangkok. In three days, we sold seven residences at around Bht 36 million each on a roadshow to Hong Kong just two weeks ago.”
He said the factors helping sales at The Ritz-Carlton Residences were a resurgence of confidence in the future of Thailand, combined with conviction in the quality that PACE can deliver after the company‟s success in providing zero-defect units at its fully-sold out Saladaeng Residences.
“Our Saladaeng Residences has been a great proof-point for the quality we are promising at MahaNakhon,” said Mr. Sorapoj.

He said that a large penthouse at The Ritz-Carlton Residences of around 1,500 square metres has also been sold in Bangkok, in January, for Bht 480 million, making it the single, largest and highest price condominium ever purchased in Thailand.
“The purchase of these very-high-end units has also established PACE as the undisputed leader in luxury development and shows the trust we have earned. It also shows that The Ritz-Carlton brand is widely known as a guarantee of world-class luxury, combined with service excellence and a meticulous attention to details of the needs of its residents,” Mr. Sorapoj said.
“Our construction is progressing well. The residential tower is scheduled for completion in 2015. The 7-storey CUBE Lifestyle and Retail Centre, which is a part of MahaNakhon development, will already be opening within the last quarter of this year,” he said.
According to Mr. Sorapoj, more than 2,500 square metres of residence were sold in January. In Thailand, the residences sold were two penthouses as well as 3-bedroom and 2-bedroom residences, while those sold in Hong Kong were mostly 2-bedroom residences valued at around Bht 36 million each.
He said that on 1st March, PACE will be adjusting its prices upwards by 5%.
“During the Hong Kong roadshow conducted between 18-20 January, we also met with our existing co-owners who have already bought residences at MahaNakhon and we updated them on the development‟s progress over dinner at a 2 Michelin Star restaurant. With the construction work now going above ground there has been a lot of new interest and some are now considering upgrading their residences or purchasing a second residence,” he said.
Mr. Sorapoj added that PACE is currently planning a roadshow to the Middle East, which will take place before the middle of the year.

Notes to the Editor
PACE is currently constructing Bangkok‟s tallest building – a 77-floor pixilated tower that will become a landmark feature of Bangkok‟s skyline when completed in 2015. The tower is a part of the Bht 19 billion MahaNakhon mixed-used development that includes 194 Ritz-Carlton branded luxury residences, a 150-room boutique hotel, as well as the CUBE Lifestyle and Retail Centre which is anchored by three world-class dining experiences, including Vogue Club, which will open on the 7th floor of the CUBE by the end of 2013, together with Dean and DeLuca‟s flagship outlet, which will be located on the 1st floor, and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, who will open his first restaurant in Thailand. Joël Robuchon has been titled „Chef of the Century‟ by the prestigious Gault Millau guide and has the greatest number of Michelin Stars of any chef in the world. His restaurants are located at some of the most prestigious locations around the world.
PACE Development is a residential property developer that focuses on innovative design and prime locations with a track-record of delivering its projects on time and at the highest quality standards. It is led by a dynamic management team with a strong background in property development.
MahaNakhon is a luxury ‘mixed-use’ development designed to give Bangkok’s skyline an iconic architectural landmark with its 77 floors reaching 314 metres in height and making it the tallest building in Bangkok.
The building has a distinctive three-dimensional ribbon of architectural ‘pixels’ that circle the tower’s full height to create a stunning profile and give it extraordinary features – projecting glass skyboxes with sweeping views and generous indoor / outdoor spaces with oversized terraces.
The MahaNakhon tower will accommodate The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Bangkok, with 194 luxury homes, each offering the atmosphere of a skybox penthouse, managed by The Ritz- Carlton with five-star amenities for all residents. Residences start from the 23rd floor and go up to the penthouse Sky Residences on the 73rd floor, ranging in size from 120 sqm to 850 sqm (2-5 bedrooms) and priced at between Bht 32 million to over Bht 300 million per home.

As for price per sqm, I believe one of the highest prices for a unit in Bangkok is at 185 Rajadamri. I got a quotation of around 330 million baht for the penthouse which is around 600-700sqm if I'm not mistaken so the price per sqm is around 500,000 baht, around $17,000.

Some serious money in this thread, and I thought the Penthouse atop San Francisco St. Regis sold for a record $28 Million was expensive.

Must be an error, like a 0 added. 40,000 USD per square meter is just too high for Mexico City. Square meter for apartments usually tops at 7,000 USD or about that.

not the most expensive in the city but the most expensive in my neighborhood is this tri-level 650sqm penthouse for God knows how much but other smaller penthouses in the twin towers were sold for just $4 million.

Here's my city's most expensive skypad. Only $2.1 million for the penthouse of the Lowry Building, just a block off Rice Park.

Walker Tower's $55M Penthouse Attempts Downtown Manhattan Record



Quote:
Walker Tower already boasts the second most expensive condo in Downtown Manhattan—the $34 million penthouse combo that an unidentified buyer signed a contract for back in December. It's also going for the Downtown condo record, trying to unseat the $42 million penthouse in 18 Gramercy Park with its $55 million Penthouse One, which will officially hit the market today, according to The Real Deal. The 6,000-square-foot 5BR, 5.5BA pad occupies the entire top floor of the building and will be move-in ready by the end of the year. It features 360-degree views, 479 square feet of terrace space, heated flooring, and monthly fees of just over $9,000.
PH1 listing for $55 million:


Or PH2 which lists at $45 million:




Pick whichever one you like!
