Super penthouses for the elite

Super penthouses are at least 10,000 sq feet (about 10 times the size of a four-room HDB flat) and are located in buildings with a height of at least 1,000 feet.

Such properties appeal to ultra-high-net-worth individuals, including CEOs or chairpersons of MNCs who prize “trophy homes” in gateway cities.

According to Business Times, Dyson reportedly paid S$73.8 million for the property.

Other super penthouses in Singapore include the Concourse Skyline at Beach Road, The Marq on Paterson Hill and Reflections at Keppel.

The most expensive super penthouse in the world is the Tour Odeon Sky Penthouse, located in Monaco.

It costs US$335 million (S$453 million) and has remained unsold since it was put on the market in 2016.
