Think penthouse apartments are only available in New York City? Think again. Downtown Phoenix’s 44 Monroe offers urban high-rise living at its eight luxury penthouses, which range from 2,200 to 2,800 square feet. As the tallest building in Downtown Phoenix, 44 Monroe gives it residents a bird’s-eye view of the Valley (which can be admired via floor-to-ceiling windows) and the feeling as if they are living on top of the world. While the building provides such perks as a resort-style pool and spa and being mere minutes from Downtown entertainment, each unit impresses with Viking stainless steel appliances, polished quartz countertops, European frameless cabinetry and other top-notch fixtures and finishes. www.44monroe.com.
