There’s simply no getting around it — one of the best things about luxury condo living are the views.
Whether you’re looking out over Central Park or taking in an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean, a relaxing and exclusive feeling quickly takes over when your home sits above it all in a high-rise building.
From the East Coast to the West Coast and everywhere in between, there are amazing luxury condos with views that are hard to beat. However, some simply do stand out among the rest. These seven buildings in cities across the U.S. offer some of the most beautiful views money can buy.
Boston’s Millennium Tower
Considering that the Millennium Tower is the tallest residential building in downtown Boston, you know the views are going to be hard to beat. Stretching 55 floors into the sky, the building is home to 442 units and offers several luxe amenities like 24-hour concierge service and a doorman. The building also features a resident-only fitness center and a club that spans two levels and clocks in at 23,000 square feet.
Chicago’s Vista Residences
Also known as the St. Regis Residences, Chicago’s Vista Residences offer simply stunning, 360-degree views of Lake Michigan and the rest of Chicago. Inside, the entire 47th floor is dedicated to its residents’ wellness (and because this is the first St. Regis in Chicago, it’s exclusive to say the least). Think pool, wine tasting room, and Zen Garden.
Austin’s The Independent
Standing 685 feet tall, The Independent is the tallest residential building in Texas. Naturally, it offers unparalleled views. Inside, the building’s 58 stories are home to 370 condo units and a long list of luxury amenities like an infinity pool, a theater room, a dog grooming station, a children’s room, and more.
New York’s 432 Park Avenue
At 1,398 feet tall and located just blocks from Central Park, 432 Park Avenue offers a view of the city that never sleeps that few get to enjoy. Plus, it’s the self-described tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, so if you’re looking for views, look no further. In addition to sprawling views, residents enjoy a lounge, fitness center, billiards room, a lap pool, spa, and massage room.
Seattle’s Olive 8
Perched atop the Hyatt, the Olive 8 is one of the tallest residential towers in Seattle, so residents get to see the city from a vantage point above the rest. The city’s first Silver LEED-certified hotel and residence building, residents have access to all of the amenities that hotel guests enjoy like valet parking, room service, and housekeeping. The building also has a concierge service, laundry service, a 2,400 square foot fitness center, a yoga studio, a saline lap pool, and much more.
Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan Condos
Sitting above a hotel of the same name, the Cosmopolitan Condos of Las Vegas stretch higher than many of the other buildings along The Strip, which means you can take in the lights, water shows, and more all from your living room. Once you tire of the views, there are plenty of luxury amenities like a heated pool, a tennis court, concierge services, and more to keep you busy.
