Saw a program on Discovery about the construction of this beauty. $10m would only buy you an apartment low down. Prices quoted were upwards to $100m for a penthouse. Apparently bathrooms are made from the finest Carrera marble, from a quarry in Italy (where Michelangelo obtained his stone). The selector was very picky and only accepted the highest quality of marble; the wrong 'streaks' or flaws were just not good enough. Kitchen cabinetry is from Smallbone of Devises, Wiltshire (I am pleased to say), probably the most upmarket kitchen designers around.

All marketing bullshit. I did not know Discovery is a real estate broker? It seems to me that the Discovery Channel is not anymore what it used to be.

If you have a 10 million dollars apartment I bet you can hire a decent interior design and buy furniture to match....

Your latter statement is so true, discovery is no more a decent channel, just rubbish....

As much as the Discovery channel has become a joke, look at their 'shark week' nonsense, haven't all the units in this tower been sold for quite some time anyway? So there's no real need for marketing anymore, it's more about people being nosy over a life they fantasize about having, it's like that show Cribs on MTV.

It's probably not a coincidence MTV and Discovery Chanel are mentioned in one breath, both went the same way... (down)

The canopy lights are insanely bright, almost to the point of being painful. The hotel and the condo entrance both had doormen and another person was sweeping the concrete.

If people have moved in, shouldn't the title be changed to complete? Or are they still working on the interior?

It's actually the exterior that is not finished. There's a huge gap in the cladding on the North East side.

I don't know how so many people are missing this
