New York City’s Most Outlandish Amenities

From over-the-top swimming pools to a valet service for strollers, New Yorkers are reaping some of the most luxurious perks NYC has to offer.

New York City always brings it’s A-game when designing new residencies, but aside from design and creativity it seems developers are willing to roll out the red carpet for tenants, literally.

Big City living is expected to be as lavish as it is in the movies, and these buildings definitely don’t fall short of high-expectations.

Beach Street Condo’s Subterranean Pools

HFZ Capital Group’s condo conversion in Tribeca is gaining attention with its sleek subterranean swimming pools with geothermal heating. The three pools are each part of the three triplex townhouses, located at 11 Beach Street.

The luxury stainless steel swimming pools were designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and are 50 feet long, illuminated by faux skylights, and are finished with floor-to-ceiling stone. The private spa area is outfitted with a steam room, sauna, and rainforest shower for homeowners to relax away from the city.

Sky’s Chauffeured Volvo

Moinian Group’s enormous Sky development has attracted the likes of Hollywood A-listers, and for good reason. The luxury development is already jam-packed with high-end amenities, but the most lavish of them all is the specialty amenity exclusive to penthouse owners—a chauffeured Volvo XC90 Excellence.

The car features its own spread of amenities such as massage chairs with heating and cooling capabilities, crystal champagne flutes, beverage warmer and coolers, and even pop-up foot rests.

34 Leonard’s Private Wine Cellar

 Designed by award-winning architects Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners, this luxury Tribeca co-op is packed with swanky perks. From the state-of-the-art gym and pet spa, to the private tasting rooms.

In addition, each resident has access to a personal climate-controlled wine cellar that can comfortably store over 300 bottles of wine—the ultimate amenity for wine connoisseurs everywhere.

50 Gramercy Park’s Lock-and-Key Resident Park

 The residents of this luxury building don’t have to travel to Central Park to get their outdoor fix. The luxury building is known for its exclusive amenities—and its private park tops the list.

Designed by Samuel Ruggles, the park is only accessible to residents by key. It has remained a coveted amenity since its inception in the 1830s, and is modeled after London Square. The private oasis provides residents with tranquility right outside their residence, uninterrupted by the fast-paced city.

251 First Street’s Valet Stroller Service

New York parents typically pride themselves on their strollers using it as an ally throughout the city, but when it comes to storing the stroller and taking up additional home space it can cause quite the frustration.

Luckily, 251 First Street is the first New York City building to offer a valet stroller and storage service. Residents can call down to the front desk before leaving and the stroller will be ready to go by the time they get to the lobby. Once residents return home, they can leave the stroller with the doorman who will ensure it is stored properly and ready for its next use.
