High-rise living has so much to offer. From living in the middle of an urban oasis and living a walkable, car-free life to taking in unobstructed and jaw-dropping views from your bedroom or living room, the perks are practically endless.
One of the best, though, is the exclusive lifestyle that living in a high-rise condo building can offer. Not everyone can afford to live in a luxury condo building. For those who can call some of the most expensive high-rise buildings home, the exclusivity they offer is practically unparalleled.
If living in a building that most can only dream of, behold seven of the most expensive condo buildings in the United States.
1. 432 Park Avenue, New York City
Just mere blocks to Central Park, 432 Park Avenue bills itself as the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere which means that it towers above the rest — and that’s a major feat in New York City. With Palladian-proportioned rooms made from luxury materials, the building and its condos are designed to blend classic and modern Park Avenue style.
2. 220 Central Park South, New York City
Sitting just 18 stories tall, 220 Central Park South offers exclusive living in the heart of Manhattan. Outfitted with Alabama limestone and Juliet balconies, the units enjoy full views of Central Park. The building boasts a range of amenities that include a full-service garage, a spa, a sports court, a screening room, and more.
3. 50 United Nations Plaza, New York City
Units in 50 United Nations Plaza are designed with both entertaining and retreating in mind. They feature floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the East River and the city’s stunning skyline. When it comes to amenities, there’s plenty to enjoy from a private motor court set back from the street, valet parking, a 75-foot pool, a modern fitness center, and a children’s playroom.
4. One Dalton, Boston
Sometimes known as the Four Seasons, One Dalton offers luxury high-rise living in Boston’s Back Bay. The floor-to-ceiling windows are triple layered, which means they filter out UV rays, boost energy efficiency, and reduce noise while featuring unparalleled views.

The Vista Residences are also known as the Residences at the St. Regis and they offers exactly the luxury experience that goes with the name. Besides 36-degree views of the city’s skyline and Lake Michigan, the building has zeroed in on wellness-focused living. What does that mean? Think the entire 7th floor dedicated to amenities like a pool, Zen Garden, and expansive terrace in addition to a demonstration kitchen and a wine tasting room.
6. Waiea Condos, Honolulu
The Waiea Condos are home to 171 units as well as penthouse options for those who want to experience Honolulu the way that few can: above it all.
