This penthouse just became Boston’s most expensive rental of the year, and it’s exactly where you think it is.

The three-bedroom unit in Millennium Tower, arguably the city’s most luxurious residential high rise, recently rented for $30,000 per month. That made it Boston’s priciest 12-month lease of 2018, per MLS records. The apartment was rented out by Compass agents Antonio Khoury and Brett Derocker in an off-market transaction.

Why would someone pay $30,000 a month in rent? (You know, as opposed to buying a place?) That’s a question we don’t have the answer to. What we do know is the apartment measures a whopping 4,173 square feet. That’s larger than most homes in the suburbs, making room for an office, a library, maybe a floor hockey rink, or anything else the new tenant can dream up. It also boasts four and a half bathrooms, soaring ceilings, two parking spots, and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the city.

The kitchen, meanwhile, is outfitted with Christopher Peacock cabinetry, not to mention a wine cooler and top-of-the-line appliances. What’s most impressive is the walk-out deck, offering panoramic views of the skyline and beyond. Millennium Tower residents also have access to the largest in-building gym in Boston, plus an indoor lap pool, hot tub, steam room, spa, and kids’ playroom.

While this glass-walled residence is no doubt steeped in luxury, it’s small potatoes compared to the unit on the 60th floor. Called “the Grand Penthouse,” the condo is the crown of the tower, taking up the entire top floor with eight bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms. It’s now on the market for a mere $45 million.
