Aquatic amenities don’t come cheap in this ultra-luxe building
Apartments at Chelsea’s ultra-fancy Soori High Line have been slowly dribbling out onto the market for nearly two and a half years now, and with the building nearing completion (it’s slated for 2017), the development is finally ready to release one of its crown jewels. And the place is priced accordingly: the absurdly luxurious triplex penthouse is asking $22.5 million, more than $7 million more than the next most expensive option.
The 4,510-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-bathroom abode offers a tailored living area, “beautified by stretching walls of glass” (windows are for plebes), nearly 20-foot-high ceilings and as yet unspecified “top-of-the-line designer finishes.”
But let us move onto what really matters: the private heated rooftop swimming pool. Such pools are a signature of architect Soo K. Chan, so much so that in fact 16 of the 31 units are equipped with one. (Usually, though, they are located serenely in the living room.)
While the aquatic abundance is really the distinguishing feature here, the visually striking building offers a host of other amenities, from the standard (a doorman, laundry, bike storage) to the spectacular (a spa, library, and designated “wine cellar/tasting area”).
