New York City real estate is known for its skyscrapers and luxury amenities. While many buildings have the gym or lounge area on bottom floors, these luxury buildings have put these amenities up top for tenants to see the whole city while getting their workout in.
Here now, nine of the most high end top floor amenities offered to residents
Developers Bizzi & Partners have taken this trend to the next level by swapping out penthouse floors for amenities. The 88-story tower is the only new condo development to provide amenities on the top three floors of a building, featuring a private club for residents on floors 86-88 called “The 88” which has the highest pool and screening room in the city. The 88 features 15,000 square feet of lifestyle amenities that cover everything needed for an at-home escape or a big soiree, including an expansive resident lounge, a screening room, and a private dining room for a seated party of 10, complete with a fireplace and a catering kitchen.
Wellness amenities take care of the mind, body, and soul. They include a 50' lap pool with poolside chaise lounges, men's and women's locker rooms, and a panoramic view of Manhattan’s cityscape; a tranquil spa with a sauna, steam room, massage therapy rooms, and a treatment room for by-appointment professional hairstyling, manicure, and pedicure services; a quiet relaxation lounge; and a fully equipped fitness center, weight room, and yoga studio with 24-hour access, top-of-the-line equipment, and a private training room.
