Few designations are more prestigious than PH, the elevator button abbreviation for Penthouse. The name derives from the Old French word apentis, which means “appendage,” combined with the English noun house. What they signify is the top floor of a tall building, with the added flavor that most penthouses are outfitted with the apex of luxurious amenities. Here are a few of the most exclusive offerings in Miami.
