Making A Splash


28.07.23Ready to dive into Summer, Abode2 shares our top picks of refreshing rooftop pools at luxury condo buildings across the US

With August right around the corner, summer is heating up and there’s nothing better than cooling off in a pool after a long, hot day. Even better than that, cooling off in your own pool that’s located at the top of your building with open-air views of the gorgeous surroundings. It’s extremely rare to find a rooftop pool at a residential building in a big city, so we’ve rounded up a few of the best, offering breathtaking views that allow residents to make the most of summer and soak up the sun during the season.

547 West 47th Street

Situated in the heart of Manhattan’s West Side and sculpted by the acclaimed Dutch-based design firm Concrete, 547 West 47th Street is a transformative, move-in-ready luxury condominium that brings 219 studio to two-bedroom residences and more than 30,000 square feet of massively-scaled, indoor/outdoor amenities and resort-style services known as “The West Residence Club” to Hell’s Kitchen. Complete with a refreshing rooftop pool and picturesque views in every direction, the communal spaces are spread across multiple levels of the 12-story development and make 547 West 47th Street the perfect place to kick off summer in the city and entertain guests all season long. The expansive rooftop level features a breathtaking swimming pool and sun deck, a chic lounge area overlooking the Hudson River and city skyline, outdoor kitchens and dining areas, and more intimate spaces like private cabanas.

Brooklyn Point

Brooklyn Point, the first-and-only for sale residences located above City Point, a 600,000-square-foot mecca of retail, dining and entertainment opportunities — is a 720-foot tower by Extell Development Company in Downtown Brooklyn that offers amazing views as well as over 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities.  Perhaps the ultimate amenity is the highest residential infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere on a landscaped rooftop that is outfitted with a sundeck and an outdoor movie screening space. With impeccable views of the New York City waterways and Manhattan skyline, the rooftop retreat at Brooklyn Point is the ultimate private pool club.

The Four Seasons Private Residences New Orleans

Located in the heart of the south, The Four Seasons New Orleans is the transformation of one of the city’s most recognizable and iconic towers – into a premier hotel and residential address, marking the first hotel-serviced residential building, the first luxury high-rise condominium, and the first to offer views, amenities and services of this scale and magnitude in New Orleans. Beginning 211 feet above ground level on the 19th floor, the property houses 81 condominium residences ranging from one-to-three bedrooms and a select collection of penthouses on the building’s crowning floors, allowing residents to enjoy unprecedented panoramic views from the highest residential elevations in the city.
