This Winter, Warm Up on the Roof
Rooftop gardens, bars, and lounges are wonderful, there’s no doubt about it. But how many of them can you enjoy all year round? The answer, if you’re wondering, is very, very few. And of those that remain open all year, most aren’t designed to be truly enjoyed during the colder months — they just remain open in case any intrepid tenants want to brave the weather. At the Midtown West apartments at 555TEN, however, the rooftop club and bar are just as enjoyable in the middle of winter as they are in the summer or spring. In fact, nearly all of the building’s amenities were thoughtfully designed to be fully functional throughout the entire year.
But before we get to the roof, we need to mention the fitness center. This is not just a room with some weights and treadmills, this is a full-on, attended gym. You’ll find a private studio for yoga, aerobics, and weight-training classes, as well as a number of Peloton bikes for live, interactive spin classes, and a Nexersys high-intensity boxing game. All of this in addition to the indoor saltwater lap pool. So, if you’re looking to stay fit through the winter season, you won’t even need to leave the building.
Now, if you’re in the market for something a bit more relaxing, say, a cozy wind-down after a long day, that’s where the rooftop club and bar come in. You can head up there with a glass of wine, or perhaps a decadent hot chocolate from local gems Jacque Torres or Godiva, and either relax around the fireplace inside the club, or head outside and still enjoy the warmth from the roaring flames. The indoor/outdoor fireplace keeps the roof area accessible and warm. Imagine taking in the first snow of the season from the top of a building in Midtown Manhattan — and imagine being warm while doing so.
The views from 56 stories up extend for miles over the glimmering and occasionally snow-covered cityscape, making the rooftop a truly serene, unrivaled enclave during the winter months.
While many Midtown West apartments tend to cater toward the warmer seasons, 555TEN crafted its amenities to be enjoyed all year round. You and your fellow residents in the 555TEN luxury rentals have a stunning, private rooftop bar bathed in the glow of firelight, as well as a high-end fitness center, a bowling alley, an arcade, and much more. We wonder why anyone would ever leave.
