The Best Apartment Rooftop Pools In DC
Comprised of 3 separate apartment buildings in the Capitol Riverfront, The Collective is a unique living experience here in DC. The 3 buildings essentially share one footprint and each boasts its own set of swoon-worthy amenities. Residents at any of the buildings have access to the amenities at all 3, making it feel almost like country club living. Park Chelsea, which opened in May of 2016, has one of the grandest rooftops in DC, complete with an amply-sized pool, dog park, 2 grilling stations, community garden and an outdoor living room with a large-screen tv and a firepit. Agora, the second building in The Collective, is set to open late this summer and offers an equally impressive rooftop space, complete with infinity-edge pool overlooking the Capitol, dog park, private party dining room, and conversation pods, TVs and fire pitted dotted throughout.
The Hepburn scores major points for uniqueness with their rooftop setup. Not only is the view stunning (as is the rest of this building), but a trip to the roof reveals a reflecting pool, a plunge pool, custom waterfall, and several sunning areas. If you enjoy entertaining, your guests will be blown away by the private cabanas complete with gas grills and cooling fans.
One of DC’s most buzzed about neighborhoods, Shaw, is home to The Shay, an equally buzzed about apartment community with some serious style. Head up to the roof and you’ll find a generously sized pool (which is a relative rarity for both rooftops and for DC). Lounge poolside or head inside to the game room for a round of pool or foosball when it’s time to cool off!
