Feel that? Summer is just around the corner, but before we can revel in lazy days oceanside in the Hamptons, we bask in the lukewarm rays of spring. Here at Haute Living, we like to do our basking from the top, and in Manhattan, there is no shortage of rooftop terraces to take advantage of. Here are four sky-high outdoor terraces to help you welcome spring.
Two Waterline Square Penthouse B
New York’s transformative luxury residential project, Waterline Square, has just released its first penthouse and with it comes an immense private outdoor living space. Located in the largest and tallest of the three towers, the glamorous Two Waterline Square Penthouse B crowns the 38th floor, showcasing uninterrupted views of the Hudson River and all of Manhattan. The sprawling terrace is the best place to take in the view, soak up the sun and watch the city hustle and bustle below. The terrace is furnished with a hot tub, generous seating areas, a fireplace and an outdoor kitchen, perfect for outdoor entertaining. The penthouse is currently listed for $17.25 million.
NoHo’s newest and highly anticipated 12-story ground-up luxury condominium also released one of the last remaining penthouses in the building, listed for $15.5 million.
