The Staircase A Giant Could Climb -- And You Can Live In

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

Conceived by 10 Arquitectos, it's set to open in coming months. The winding design bathes each of the 865 units in the 120,000sqm structure in light. Gorgeous views of the Hudson River, rooftop gardens and a Mercedes dealership are among some of the perks of living in the building. 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 unit starts at around $US3000 per month. [MyModernMet via Techeblog]
