Luxury high-rises are setting the bar high for multifamily construction—literally.

RENTCafe, an internet listing service owned by Yardi Systems, scoured their database to find the 10 tallest residential rental buildings completed in 2015 that are now leasing. The shortest building kicked off the list at 375 feet and 33 stories, while the winner clocked in at 656 feet with 71 stories in New York. For reference, that's a little bigger than the size of the St. Louis Gateway Arch, but is still half the size of 432 Park Avenue, its neighbor in the Big Apple and the tallest residential building in the world at 1,396 feet.

Some standouts include 1N4th, the first high-rise rental development on the Williamsburg waterfront in Brooklyn, N.Y., which offers unparalleled views of the Manhattan skyline; Hunters Point South, an affordable high-rise in Queens; The Bowie, a luxury Texas development featuring the highest swimming pool in the state; and One Sixty Madison, an unique octagonal building in Manhattan.

With the help of Google Street View, the team at RENTCafe created interactive slides to showcase how these buildings have transformed the neighborhood and skyline. Just slide the arrow back and forth across the image for a before and after comparison.
