It is considered that only penthouses and other high-floor homes at most of New York’s residential buildings boast the most spacious outdoor spaces. However, since homebuyers continue to value outdoor space, especially in the wake of the pandemic, developers design more units with bigger and better outdoor spaces regardless of the size of the apartment or its location within the building. Some of these terraces are even larger than the average Manhattan studio apartment.
1. 212 West 93rd Street
70% of the residences in the ODA-designed building 212 West 93rd Street offer outdoor space.
Residence 11 has four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a 489-square-foot terrace with multiple exposures, which can be accessed from both the living room and the kitchen. It’s available for $6.59 million.
The new Scandinavia-inspired condominium development located at the intersection of 14th Street and Sixth Avenue, FÖRENA offers residence 8B which boasts 513 square feet of exterior space. The L-shaped terrace wraps around the corner of the unit, creating separate areas for lounging, dining and sunbathing, and is accessible from the home’s main living and dining areas via two separate entrances. It’s priced at $5.75 million.
3. 200 East 59th Street
Located in the middle of Manhattan, 200 East 59th Street with its 35 floors of wraparound terraces and white exterior columns is reminiscent of Miami condo.
All 67 homes are corner units and feature continuous terraces, including residence 19E, a two-bedroom, 2.5-bath residence with a 571-square-foot wrap-around terrace with North and West facing views. It’s on the market for $4.729 million.
4. Waterline Square
The sweeping terrace features multiple seating areas, including a full dining area and lounge chairs, and showcases endless views of the city skyline. It’s available for $6.6 million.
5. Front & York
Front & York’s residence 8X features an 845-square-foot rooftop terrace with a grill. This space can accommodate a large dining table and a row of daybeds for catching some rays, along with a separate lounge area.
There’s also an additional 216 square feet of outdoor space off the home’s main living area. It’s available for $3.65 million.
