It's officially summer in the city and while you may be making plans for summer camp or daycare, these luxury developments are introducing kids amenities to show love for their little residents, just as much as they do for their older residents. Here are six residential developments that are kid-friendly.
5 River Park
5 River Park, the first new building in the River Park mega-project on the rise in Cobble Hill, which has over 20,000 square feet of amenities, meaning residents of the 25 apartments won’t have to worry about overcrowding. The three-floor amenities space features a private playground for kids, while parents can relax at the adjacent outdoor living room. Afterward, the family can cool off at the in-ground pool, or if it’s rainy, play inside at the jungle-themed kid’s room.
11 Hoyt, designed by Jeanne Gang, features a nearly 27,000-square-feet elevated private park. The park boasts multiple flower gardens, all strategically featuring native flowers that draw in monarch butterflies during their yearly migration. Kids will enjoy running and climbing around the outdoor play area, which includes a giant caterpillar and butterfly.
This quintessential Upper East Side residence attracts families with its sunlit and spacious 4-bedroom condominiums, as well as its amenity spaces. With two floors dedicated separately to wellness and leisure, Citizen 360 has a unique kid's space complete with its own art room. The art-focused playroom has a chalkboard wall, performance space, and craft tables. The art room is a separate offshoot where the building provides kids with their own art supplies.
The Upper East Sides most valuable address has more than just dazzling multi-million dollar condos. Camp Kent is your solution to summer camp in the city. Created by top designer, Champalimaud, your youngsters get to enjoy their very own indoor-outdoor playroom featuring a climbable tree house. The room is also fitted with reimagined birch trees that surround a campfire, a custom carpet with a contoured stream and planting—everything a kid needs to spend a night under the stars.
The new luxury development perched on the water's edge in the Upper West Side has everything you need to keep your energetic kids entertained this summer. The Waterline Club connects the three buildings of Waterline Square to bring its residents a comprehensive amenity space with everything from sports courts to kids playrooms and even a bowling alley. For the sporty child in your life, there is a full tennis court with bleachers, a rock climbing wall, basketball court, soccer field, and children's pool. For family fun, there is a bowling alley, games lounge with ping pong and billiards and a party room, so they can invite friends. Waterline Square also has an art studio, children's indoor playroom, and a dedicated toddler's play area, for the younger ones.
