Want to live like a crazy rich Asian? Well, we know a nice place you could get (at a crazy rich price).

Singapore is home to six of the 11 super penthouses around the world currently on sale, The Straits Times (ST) quoted brokerage firm List Sotheby’s International Realty as saying on Wednesday (June 19).

The others are located in Monaco, Miami, New York and Auckland.

While a typical penthouse is a luxury apartment located at the top of a tall building, super penthouses go one level beyond, with requirements such as a minimum size of 10,000 square feet (about 10 times the size of a four-room HDB flat) and a building height of at least 1,000 feet.

Only six super penthouses were sold in Singapore between 2006 and 2019, ST reported.

According to List Sotheby’s, here are the six ultra-lavish penthouses on sale in Singapore, and their asking price:

#1: Wallich Residence (Tanjong Pagar) – S$108 million

This apartment, which comes with a whopping S$108 million price tag, is the country’s largest non-landed property. It’s located on the 62nd to 64th floor of Guoco Tower.
