    The city that never sleeps is also the city that never stops growing. Each of the following new high-rise developments from top architects presents prospective homeowners with the opportunity to live in a work of art.

    One Museum Mile
    Residences: Located at 1280 Fifth Ave. with views of Central Park, the 20-story building was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and features interiors by Andre Kikoski. The 113 residences, half of which have been sold, were completed late last year and range from 838-square-foot studios to a 4,963-square-foot, eight-bedroom penthouse.
    Amenities: Residences feature open kitchens with Bosch and Thermador appliances, while the building offers a fitness center with terrace, a children’s playroom, a game room, a residents’ lounge, a media room, and a landscaped rooftop deck with a pool and lounge chairs.
    Price: $735,000 to $6.94 million
    Inquiries: 212.996.1280, onemuseummile.com

    The Centurion
    Residences: Forty-eight units with one to four bedrooms occupy the 19-story structure designed by the Louvre architect I.M. Pei. A plan to combine the building’s three penthouses has been envisioned by the designer James Stanley, whose video walk-through illustrates his designs for a triplex with five bedrooms, two kitchens, three full baths, a media room, a private elevator, a three-story glass staircase, and a private spa.
    Amenities: Inside the homes, which have ceilings as high as 17 feet, are Bosch appliances; teak floors; tinted, sound-insulated windows; and marble and limestone floors and countertops.
    Price: $2.8 million to $39 million

    56 Leonard
    Residences: Designed by the Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron, the 60-story structure will feature 145 residences upon its completion in 2016. Units will range from 1,400-square-foot two-bedrooms to 6,400-square-foot five-bedrooms. The top nine floors will house 10 penthouses with 14-foot ceilings and wraparound views. The building’s stacked design resembles a Jenga tower, with each of its glass-walled units affording a variety of layouts and terraces. A sculpture by Anish Kapoor, who created Chicago’s Cloud Gate at Millennium Park, will rest outside on the building’s first-floor base.
    Amenities: The ninth and tenth floors include a library lounge, an indoor/outdoor theater, a 75-foot lap pool, a sundeck with hot tub, a fitness center, and an entertaining area with a dining room and catering kitchen.
