There is a 4K projector that pops out from the ceiling when the curtain in the windows is closed (in my dream).

Obviously the formal living and dining rooms are what I was commenting on. Maybe we've had different upbringings, but every house I've ever lived in has had them; and each of them got used maybe four times a year at holidays. I thought this was a pretty common phenomenon (which is why most houses built now utilize open floorplans, in order to eliminate those formal distinctions). If I'm paying $50MM for a condo, I want to be sure it's all floorspace I'm going to use; which is why I thought of a dance hall, but a music studio, screening room, or even a jungle gym would all be used a lot more than a dining room in my home.

But that's just me. Maybe you do more "formal" entertaining.

Realistically even the kitchens and bedrooms in these units are going to sit empty too as their investor-buyers jet around the world, so it's probably moot.

Haha, someone was reading Gizmodo today.

A couple of those shots I was trying to imagine 225 W57 just leaping out of frame. That video is going to feel like a time capsule in a couple years.

why would you care about it. None of us, most likely including you will ever afford to buy any of those apartments

Those interior renders are so powerful with the non-intricated design... I wish I could nestle in such nests one day...

I really don't, I just find it sad that a million dollar+ apartment has the architecture of a project building. And assuming that I get into a state school for grad school (which, with my current gpa, is looking like a very likely outcome), I'd be able to afford a place like this after a few years of saving.
