There is an apartment building opening in Century City that is so luxurious, residents might never have to leave—not even for their Botox injections.

A 40-story complex at 10000 Santa Monica Blvd. called Ten Thousand Living has pretty much everything. There's a 75-foot indoor lap pool, a lounging pool, a restaurant, a spa for you, a spa for your pets, a tennis court, and a screening room. There are board rooms in case you don't feel like leaving your home to have a meeting. There is an on-site Rolls-Royce, and the building employs personal trainers and staff who will do your chores and run your errands. There are even doctors who will inject Botox into your face, an incredulous KTLA reports.

Perhaps most strange is a private park that is an acre in size, right in the middle of a bustling urban environment. Apparently, it is located on the building's third floor. The apartment's website states:

A south-facing one-acre private park is an exclusive full-service outdoor living space that includes a great lawn, a sunning pool and spa, a tennis court, strolling gardens that shape intimate and open spaces, a chef’s kitchen, a theater with an 84-foot screen and fire pit, and a dedicated dog run lawn. To create a seamless transition between the residents’ indoor lounge and the great lawn, Ten Thousand’s landscape design incorporates various fire and water features constructed out of solid granite that can be observed from the elevated indoor fitness center. Ten Thousand’s grand entrance offers an enclave of privacy and serenity with contrasting visual textures. Twelve-foot Icee BlueYellow-Wood hedges along Santa Monica Boulevard, lowergrowing evergreen shrubs, and native blooms all create a living tapestry with vibrant color throughout every season.

Elsewhere on the apartment's website, you'll learn that the building has its own app that will let you know when Yoga class is starting or allow you to call for a car. Other cutting-edge technology includes various touch-screen displays to tell you about the outside world from the convenience of the lobby and RIFD elevators that apparently save the average person 20 hours a year in elevator wait time. That's 20 hours you could be spending discussing numerology with your neighbor while taking a power walk through the private park, or whatever it is a person who lives here would do with all the time saved by not waiting for elevators or doing their own chores. Basically, if something goes wrong with this building's computer system, it will be an episode of Black Mirror.

The smallest unit will run you about $8,500 a month; prices range up to $25,000 a month for a penthouse. Given the price tag and the emphasis on discretion—the building has a private entrance—one would presume celebrities might be filling up the 40 stories when it opens either later this year or early next year.
