New York City’s 432 Park Avenue, the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere (although it won’t be for long, with the nearby Nordstrom Tower scheduled to open in 2018), is nearing completion. It has reached its peak height of 1,398 feet, and will officially open for tenants some time next year.

The penthouse sold for $95 million. The cheapest unit in the building: a measly $7 million.

If you don’t count spires or antennas, it’s now the tallest building of any kind in New York City—taller than One World Trade. If you do count them, it slips to second place—still taller than the Empire State Building, though. The building, developed by CIM Group and Macklowe Properties, is now the third tallest building in the US.

And here’s what it will look like to own one of these breathtaking apartments (if you can afford it):

We recommend that you don’t climb to the top.
