This is a USD$9-11.2 million Q1 Penthouse on the Gold Coast, Australia.












Here's a picture of the building, for those of you who don't know what Q1 is; it's the tallest building in the skyline.

I'm pretty sure you can put curtains up. The glass isn't reflective either. But yeah, it's a beautiful penthouse overlooking a beautiful city.

The one in Gold Coast is one the best I've ever seen. Wow what a view, omg!!!

Here are photo's of 'The Montevideo' in Rotterdam.
The pictures are from 2005, before it has been sold. Couldn't find better ones.
It's the building with the 'M' on top.

This is a part of the view

Is that USD or AUD for the Gold Coast one?

Regardless, that can't even get you a penthouse suite in the Highcliff in Hong Kong! Views from the Gold Coast one are absolutely stunning...the place itself is nice too!

Does this one come with or without the woman?

@_00_deathscar.

I'm not sure if it's USD or AUD. I'd presume USD because it reportedly sold for $13 milion AUD to Australian swimming legend Ian Thorpe. Will try find out more on it.

Thorpe's obviously doing well these days

@ Chinarulez - the Highcliff is okay, but I'd much rather live in the Gold Coast penthouse for a lesser price and an amazing view! As far as interiors go, the Gold Coast one beats Highcliff all ends up, even though I'm not a fan of the minimalist stuff.

Currently under construction is Toronto's Museum House, located on Bloor St. across from the Royal Ontario Museum. The penthouse there is going for 12 million Canadian on Sotheby's.

This would be the view, looking down towards Toronto's CBD over the University of Toronto campus, the ROM, and provincial legislature:




Interiors:

(lobby)



And this is the building:

The most expensive penthouse in Toronto is the one being built in the new Four Seasons. for 30 million Canadian you can get the entire top (55th) floor.
