Talking with you is all pleasure But..

First: dictionary -> mostly
Second: show me residential apartment in highrise (not house) on the ground level in shadow that cost couple of milions $ in ny. Even if there is one, or two in Pentominium will be many of them and each will cost at least couple of milions. And its just one building. And its not so prestigious place as manhatan is. So... keep your cookie.

I don't understand the Dubai vs Manhattan price comparisons...

If we really have to make somme comparisons, we shoud see what can you buy in Dubai with 3.5 M $

my If view from above is not important, I saw 700 sqm villas on The Palm with the same money...

What's your problem? Can't swallow the fact that some places far-away can command a 7 digits price while none in your town can?


... and for your info, only in one side there's a tower very close and there are no residential floors on the ground level, it starts from 6 - 7 levels above ... and still 600 sqm: Can't highlight this lil' figure enough.

1. I really don't envy how expensive are "some places far-away" and in my country the apartments are way too expensive anyway... (hope the damn prices will fall even lower)

2. I just wonder why shoud anybody pay 3.5 M $ for an apartment, if up to 40-60 floor the view is bloked by other very tall buildings. (no mather if only one building is very close, the other ones are close enough to block the view). When with the same money you can buy a nice 700 sqm villa, on the Palm, with the beach next to it... (I guess we have different taste, but in my book, the only reason to buy an apartment is the view ... to me, a house is always superior to an apartment on the lower floors, at samme price, samme area.)

Its impossible to speak calm with you? What makes you so anger? And I haven't any problem with it. It's the developer problem to sell that low units for for such a price. But we will wait we will see.

And if you can buy 700sqm villa on The Palm for the same money in the same city, i agree, thats the best comparition you can get.

That certainly doesn't look like 192 piles or whatever the amount is supposed to be.

Few piles as on photos cannot hold such a massive building. There is certainly more to be build.

Damn I miss the fight about apartments price in manhattan. Just to clear things up over a million people live in manhattan. And alot of the normal apartment cost up to 3 hundred thousand dollars and thats just for rent. The houses don't cost nearly as much mostly because of the view. I've open many papesr and seen condos going for 10 million dollars and up it crazy out there.

I guess the top floors of this building will be the Grand Penthouse(s).

I just did a search online, found a nice blog entry,

http://blog.luxuryrealestate.com/art...s-in-the-world

6,500 square feet penthouses. 50" LCD tv's, high end appliances, choice between a baby grand piano or a cocktail bar, full access to the Ferragamo beach club at the World Island, car club membership (wanna borrow a Rolls-Royce Phantom for the weekend anyone?), dedicated concierge service, spas and cigar lounges.

And starting around just $5.3 million....

5 million, but no view up to floor 60-70 or even higher...

Not to mention that it say: starting at (the lower floors), so at level 80 it might cost +10 millions...

Here I made a picture of the future view from around floor 40-50 (probably 7 millions):



Just look at google earth... this building is surounded by 2 rows of other 80-100 floor buildings very close)

This is not the "spectacular ocean view" that they advertise.
(unless you buy a 10 million or more on levels 80-120)

You are absolutely right. Anything below floor 70 will have a severely obstructed view of the ocean.

I imagine it would be a bit scary living at the top of this tall thin building.
