New York City's 'Jenga building' is one of the most unique skyscrapers in...

This skyscraper is one of New York City's most distinct.

Dubbed the "Jenga building" for its standout design, this swanky Tribeca neighborhood high rise certainly stands out in the city's famous skyline. But it's the views from the interior that will really take your breath away.

The tower's $28.5 million penthouse takes up the entire 54th floor and its exterior walls are floor-to-ceiling glass, which means every room boasts panoramic views of Manhattan and beyond.

"When you first wake up in the morning, what you see takes tourists hours or days to see," says Compass broker Toni Haber. "You have 360-degree views."

The 5,500-square-foot penthouse has four bedrooms and four and a half baths, plus 1,600 square feet of outdoor space.

The developers of this property purchased the surrounding air rights, so the views of the city skyline are legally protected.

"When you look out this window, you see buildings going up in front of other buildings," Haber says. "This will not happen here."

And if you still have some cash to spare, you can shell out $32.5 million to purchase the building's biggest (at 6,400 square feet) and most expensive penthouse, one floor below.

For those of you keeping score, that's nearly 12,000 square feet of space for a grand total of $61 million.
