With cold weather finally here to stay in New York – and especially with the freezing temps this week – indoor amenities are top of-mind for buyers at some of the city’s most luxurious condos. Indoor pools at residential projects were previously viewed as a space for residents to get their daily exercise and not much thought went into the look and feel. Now, pools at some of NYC’s newest residential projects are set within ultra-high-design spaces, drawing residents into luxe pool rooms that are true oases they actually want to spend time in all year round, whether they’re swimming or not!
200 East 83rd Street
The 17th floor at 200 East 83rd, the new Upper East Side residential tower by Robert A.M. Stern Architects with interiors by Rottet Studio, features a seventy-foot pool that allows residents to feel like they’re swimming in the sky. Uniquely situated in the middle of the 35-story limestone-clad tower, the pool room features a vaulted ceiling, honed limestone walls and a double-height loggia with floor-to-ceiling arched windows and French doors. This massive space exudes old-New York opulence and creates visual drama while inviting the outdoors in and allowing for natural light, fresh air and incredible New York City skyline and Central Park views. 200 East 83rd has broken multiple Upper East Side sales records since launching in October, and brokers attribute this amenity space as a major selling point for buyers who cannot believe the incredible design of this pool.
