How much would you pay to look down on everyone in New York City?

It could cost you as much as $95 million.

Construction has reached its peak on 432 Park Avenue in New York, the tallest condo building in the Western Hemisphere, according to The Daily Mail.

At 1,396 feet, it towers over the Empire State Building, ABC News reported. It even tops 1 World Trade Center — without its spire, of course.

The $1.3-billion tower dominates the city's skyline — and divides opinion, The New York Times reported.

"There's a handsomeness about the building you can't deny, but it's so out of context and so imposing, it's hard to know what to make of it," Vin Cipolla of the city's Municipal Art Society told the newspaper.

"God, does it stand out," city commuter Marlene Rosenthal said.

Demid Lebedev has one of the more unique perspective on the building.

Last month, the self-styled "Urban Historian" climbed the tower and snapped some spectacular photos from the 90th floor.

Although Lebedev had to sneak his way up, units are still available for those who can buy their way to the top.

A $95-million penthouse has already sold, but apartments can still be had for anywhere from $17.5 million for a view from 434 feet, to $82.5 million for a penthouse at 1,225 feet.

The latter unit, a full-floor penthouse measuring 8,255 square feet, offers six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two powder rooms and a library. There's also a private elevator landing.

It seems a fair price to pay to live like a god looking down from Olympus.
