New York City is always dreaming up the most clever new rooftop experiences — from sky-high curling games and mock ski chalets to cozy igloos and summer pool parties.
Now, some real estate developers are taking a page from this playbook and bringing exciting attractions to the rooftops of their marquee penthouses, upping the ante for buyers of multimillion-dollar homes.
We’ve rounded up penthouse listings that are unveiling incredible private rooftops (with hot tubs, gardens, pizza ovens, movie theaters, and more!) that buyers can exclusively use.
This trend presents a rare opportunity to own a piece of NYC’s most enviable rooftops and introduces an only-in-New-York lifestyle where the hottest ticket in town is at home.
This iconic Upper West Side building has smashed all expectations for indoor-outdoor living. This pair of two new ultra-lux penthouses feature their very own private rooftops, complete with landscaping, hot tubs, theaters, lounges, and yes, even pizza ovens to perfect the ultimate New York slice.
The listings, Penthouses North and South, are priced at $19.15 million and $13.5 million respectively, and deliver an experiential lifestyle that buyers will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere in the city.
The rooftops can be enjoyed year-round, thanks to steamy hot tubs that overlook Central Park. Residents can also cozy up for a movie night on the roof, or host guests for a summer soiree.
The interiors were designed by the award-winning New York firm CetraRuddy and showcase the incredible curvature of the building’s architecture, which wraps the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway. Penthouse South is listed here.
A birds-eye view of Central Park, a grand spiral staircase, and a seamless indoor-outdoor experience are all elements of this fantasy penthouse, courtesy of Developers Centurion Real Estate Partners and Keppel Capital. 200 East 59th Street is the sister building to 432 Park Avenue, one of the tallest (and most successful) residential towers in the Western Hemisphere.
The penthouse residence shines for its soaring 14-foot ceilings, incredible floor-to-ceiling windows, and massive covered roof deck that places residents high above the intersection of the vibrant Upper East Side and Midtown East neighborhoods.
The grand spaces are made all the more unique by their column-free interiors, an engineering feat accomplished by architecture firm CetraRuddy by pushing the interior support structures out to the exterior.
The columns now proudly epitomize the building’s architecture and give it its iconic Manhattan-meets-Miami look.
The penthouse also offers an incredible outdoor dining room experience that is rare to find in NYC. The listing, which is priced at $17.96 million, can be seen here.
