With temperatures in excess of 90 degrees, this summer has been a notoriously hot one. And, as we all know, there’s no better way to beat the heat than taking a dip in an outdoor swimming pool. Unfortunately for most New Yorkers, the outdoor pool is a rare find when it comes to the city’s housing stock. With this in mind, today we are looking at NYC-area rental developments that feature resort-style swimming pools, where residents can swim, lounge, dine, pretend they’re on a tropical getaway, and otherwise make the most of this socially distant summer.
Located at 151 Centre Street on Bayonne’s waterfront peninsula, Bay 151, formerly known as Harbor Station North, is comprised of three four-story buildings offering 200 rental apartments and 10,000 square feet of retail space—just steps from the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail. With nearly 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, the development boasts an outdoor sun terrace with a resort-style swimming pool surrounded by grilling stations and dining areas. It’s the perfect place to lounge poolside, or enjoy a WFH lunch.
Designed by Hollwich Kushner and Handel Architects, Journal Squared is a mixed-use development complex comprised of three towers that will bring a total of 1,840 rental residences to Jersey City’s historic Journal Square neighborhood. At 563 feet in height, the first completed tower—one of the tallest buildings in Jersey City—is home to 538 apartments and features an 8th-floor lounge that opens onto a sun terrace with an outdoor swimming pool, where residents can catch some rays while taking in the building’s dramatic panoramas of the Manhattan skyline.
Situated at the nexus of Hell’s Kitchen, Hudson Yards and just steps from stylish Chelsea, 555Ten offers 56 stories of elevated, luxury rentals. The amenities rise 650 feet to the rooftop, which features an exclusive all-season club and bar, complete with an indoor/outdoor fireplace and an outdoor swimming pool with breathtaking skyline and sunset views. The open air sundeck includes private cabanas and chaise lounges, while the southwest-facing pool creates the most exclusive observation deck experience, offering spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River.
Nestled among the lush greenery and waterfront parks of Manhattan’s coveted Battery Park City neighborhood, Gateway is a peaceful residential oasis comprised of six high-rise buildings with breathtaking harbor and city views. The Club at Gateway offers over 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities for residents of all ages, including a private outdoor pool. This pool overlooks the Hudson River and offers plenty of poolside sunbathing chairs and sun-protecting umbrellas.
Located on the waterfront of Jersey City’s thriving Newport neighborhood, Ellipse has upped the ante for luxury living in Jersey City, featuring spacious, waterfront apartments and Manhattan-style amenities. The luxe residential development, which has been designed by internationally-acclaimed design firm Arquitectonica, is home to a beautiful rooftop pool that offers residents a dramatic, one-of-a-kind view of the Manhattan skyline. The space is complete with barbecue grills and lounge chairs for soaking up the sun. It’s the ideal location to enjoy the rest of the summer.
