When it comes to luxe condo towers, there are few things you cannot find. For example, in New York, you can find an “ice room,” where it actually snows inside, as well an apartment with a view of Carnegie Hall where the music has been piped into the water, allowing swimmers to hear it even when underwater. However, New York is not the only place where you can enjoy over-the-top, yet impressive, amenities.
