At 7-foot-3, Kristaps Porzingis apparently enjoys looking down on the rest of us. The Latvian-born Knicks forward rented a corner penthouse at Moinian Group’s 71-story luxury tower Sky in Hell’s Kitchen.

The pad, which features sweeping views over Manhattan and the Hudson River, was asking $8,000 per month, the New York Post reported. The 20-year-old prodigy also rented two more units in the tower for his brothers. Located at 605 West 42nd Street, the 1,175-unit tower includes the fitness club Life Time at Sky with three swimming pools and an indoor basketball court reportedly designed by fellow Knick Carmelo Anthony.

Last June, Moinian tapped Bold New York to market the tower’s apartments.

Porzingis joined the Knicks last summer as a little-known NBA rookie out of Spain, and almost instantly emerged as a star. He averaged 14.3 points per game and finished second in the voting for rookie of the year.
