Really awesome renderings
I have the perfect place! The London Hotel in NYC, it is in midtown. I went there 2 years ago and got a place for new years (back in the days before my mother lived there and I was still a NYC tourist haha), we got a room for $800/night. I think it was that much because of the timing. Anyway, the bathroom had the best view in the hotel! We were on the 52nd floor, highest hotel room i've ever had, and the shower was big enough for a few people and had 2 showers combined! I realize it's expensive but the view, the room, and the experience were all worth it!

Wow, I just realized that at that height, they don't even need curtains or blinds!

That might change in a few years when 225 W 57 goes up though.

I strongly recommend blinds, especially if the apartment faces east. The sun combined with the height can make your apartment very hot in the mornings when there are no trees or buildings to filter it away.

^Ah, I didn't consider that. You are correct. It'd still be a funny thought to imagine some playboy billionaire bringing up some girl he met at a party that night 900ft up and doing it with the windows uncovered ;P

I'm pretty sure that's a scene in American Psycho.

Holy holy holy shit @ those renders on the last page. I can't think of a more supreme place to live. Even a castle would feel less prestigious.

In the photo where she is laying in bed it seems like it is too light in the room if you are trying to sleep, so you might want blinds just so you don't have to see all the lights outside.

That picture was done in a studio. It's not usually that bright, especially that high up.

However, I've developed into the kind of person who can't sleep if it's too dark or quiet, so take that into consideration.

If I had that bed placed right next to the windows, I'd probably have "falling" dreams all the time. Also, I noticed in the renders that some of the small windows near the floor can be opened. Could be quite dangerous on the ground if you have rich kids up there dropping toys, water balloons, and other stuff out of them!

I couldnt imagine having little kids up there.
Just thinking of all of the crazy things i broke and ran into as a child I could just picture that shattering and me plunging to a 300 meter death. Im sure its really thick glass though.

I heard that you could run and throw yourself at the glass windows in skyscrapers like this and they wouldn't break but I don't know if thats true or not.

Glass on skyscrapers are built to last against high wind. Im sure it could easily take a person slamming agasint it.

The glass is thick, but it is also laminated like a car windshield. If it breaks the plastic lamination keeps anything from going through it.

Nice.
@ EddieB317 , than the scene in mission impossible where Tom Cruise jumps trough the glass of the Burj Khalifa is fake. . But that was already clear.
