The NBA Playoffs kicked off last weekend and everyone is ready to see LeBron hit another game-winning shot. Just in time for this star-studded sports event, we are looking at the most show-stopping basketball courts inside NYC residential developments.
180 East 88th Street
Situated in the Upper East Side’s coveted Carnegie Hill neighborhood, 180 East 88th Street is a striking condominium featuring 47 graciously appointed private residences and an extensive selection of amenities.
Perhaps the most noteworthy amenity is the building’s half-court indoor basketball court featuring soaring double-height ceilings and an abundance of natural light. An incredible space, there’s no better place to perfect your jump-shot and practice your free-throw. Other notable amenities include an indoor soccer pitch, private fitness and yoga studios, game room, residential lounge, wine room, and children’s playroom. 180 East 88th Street is being developed by Joe McMillan’s DDG and Global Holdings.
Waterline Square’s extraordinary shared amenity center, the Waterline Club, spans 100,000 square feet and features every sports and fitness space you could want, including an indoor basketball court. The full-sized court offers residents the opportunity to organize standard 5-on-5 games, jump into 3-on-3 pick-up matches, or work on their jump shot. Other amenity highlights include an indoor tennis court, soccer field, squash court, indoor gardening studio, art studio and much more.
Beckford House & Tower
Beckford House & Tower, two ground-up buildings designed inside and out by Studio Sofield, is reinventing the iconic sophistication of the Upper East Side with all of the amenities and embellishments that modern luxury living demands. Combining authentic pre-war architectural tradition (hand-laid bricks, Indiana limestone, handcrafted ornamentation, traditional apartment layouts pulled right from the playbook of Rosario Candela) with the sleek and sexy interiors Sofield is known for (Tom Ford, Gucci, etc.), the development blends beautifully into the context of the neighborhood and appears as though it has been standing on 2nd Avenue for decades.
Beckford Tower, the larger of the two sister buildings, features an impressive collection of high-design amenities, including a basketball half-court, which will open to residents this summer.
Brooklyn Point – the tallest residential tower in the borough located in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn above City Point – has over 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities for residents, including an amazing basketball court with ample space for residents to play and shoot hoops.
This basketball court is not just your usual basketball court, and it actually doubles as an interactive squash court that tracks your every move and shot. The interactive squash court also offers games and training modules all complemented by bright graphics and sounds. So as long as you have a basketball, or a racquet and a ball, you are all set to break a sweat!
Front & York
Designed inside and out by celebrated architect Morris Adjmi, Front & York is pioneering an unprecedented amenity-driven lifestyle in DUMBO, Brooklyn’s most coveted waterfront neighborhood. Elevating the standard of luxury living in the area, Front & York offers residents access to an astounding 150,000 square feet of amenity spaces.
As part of its unparalleled amenity program, Front & York will be home to Life Time, the acclaimed fitness and wellness destination. The 77,000-square-foot space will be Life Time’s first location in Brooklyn and the largest Life Time location in all of New York City. Front & York residents can shoot like LeBron at Life Time’s regulation-size indoor basketball court.
