The sprawling, 13,000-square-foot penthouse at the 60th and top floor of the Millennium Tower is under contract, its developer announced Wednesday.

The unit, listed for $37.5 million, includes a 2,000-square-foot outdoor terrace and panoramic views of Boston so inconceivable to most ground-dwellers, Millennium Partners sent a drone up 685 feet to help potential buyers wrap their well-coiffed noggins around it.

Though the New York-based firm declined to disclose the closing price or the buyer, Millennium Partners told the Boston Business Journal the buyer plans to “to occupy the space as its family residence.” Just 10 percent of the remaining 442 luxury units in Boston’s third-tallest building are still up for grabs, starting at $3.3 million, the BBJ reports.

The $700 million tower, located at 1 Franklin Street in Downtown Crossing, topped off in September without 13th or 44th floors, observing superstition held in both Western and Eastern cultures, respectively. One Dalton, which will overtake the Millennium Tower for third-tallest in Boston’s crowding skyline, will have neither a fourth nor a 44th floor for the same reason.
