It is thus the world's most expensive private residential property, valued over $1 billion. Designed by Perkins And Will and later constructed by  Leighton Holdings , the home has 27 floors with extra high ceilings (Other buildings of equivalent height may have as many as 60 floors.) The home was also designed to survive an earthquake rated 8 on the Richter scale. It is considered by some to be the tallest single-family house in the world. Because it includes space for a staff of 600, others reserve that honour for a house meant to be occupied only by a single family.
