An NYC Staircase a Giant Could Climb—And You Can Live InS

The Mercedes House is a 30-story residential building under construction in New York City. With steps heading towards the sky, it's the closest we've gotten to a real-life Stairway to Heaven yet.

Conceived by Ten Arquitectos, it's set to be open later this summer. The winding design bathes each of the 865 units in the 1.3 million square-foot structure in light. Gorgeous views of the Hudson River, rooftop gardens, and naturally, a Mercedes dealership, are among some of the perks of living in the place. But if you want to hang your hat in this Midtown Manhattan spot, it will cost you a serious chunk of change—a one bedroom starts at around $3,000 a month. [MyModernMet via Techeblog]
