The most expensive apartment will cost $400 million

The tiny city-state of Monaco has always been the playground of the super-wealthy, come 2015 it will also be home to the most expensive apartment in the world.



The “Sky Penthouse” which is currently under construction will sit atop the Odean Tower, the principality’s first skyscraper since the 1980’s, and will cost $400 million according to reports. The penthouse is a stunning display of luxury and wealth, which includes a crazy rooftop slide.



Slated for completion in September 2015, the 3251-square-meter quintuplex “Sky Penthouse” will tower over Monaco’s skyline at a height of nearly 182 meters. Expected to hit the market next year, the expensive penthouse is being developed as part of Monaco’s luxury-housing boom, fueled by the influx of millionaires and billionaires fleeing taxes and the collapse of financial-secrecy laws. According to a study by Spear’s magazine and WealthInsight, one in three of Monaco’s 38,000 residents are millionaires.



Overlooking the Monaco coastline, the five-floor Sky Penthouse will boast an incredible water slide that extends from an upper dance floor down to a circular infinity pool. The apartment will also be equipped with a health center, multiple swimming pools, a personal chauffeur and an in-house caterer.
