About halfway through spring 2024, it is an exciting time for New York sports fans. In a thrilling victory, the New York Knicks just defeated the Philadelphia 76ers to advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals of the NBA playoffs. On the hockey front, the New York Rangers will play in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Sunday, May 5. And about a month into baseball season, both the Yankees and the Mets are doing well.

It is also a golden age for fitness enthusiasts as well as sports fans. Once upon a time, residential buildings treated fitness centers and indoor pools as the height of amenities; today, almost no so-called luxury condominium is complete without them, and developers have gone one step further to accommodate a wide range of sports and activities under one roof, not to mention state-of-the-art technology to up one's game. Below, see the most striking examples.

555-West-22nd-Street-01 Pilates room (Related Companies, Olson Kundig and RAMSA via M18)
As activities like yoga and Pilates have increased in popularity, residential developers have started to include separate movement studios in their fitness centers to accommodate mat-based workouts. However, The Cortland takes this to the next level by offering a dedicated Pilates studio with reformers and specialty equipment that allows for more involved sessions. It is located alongside the building's standard gym and yoga studio.

378-West-End-Avenue-01 Basketball court (Compass)
All common spaces at 378 West End Avenue include copper alloy door handles and advanced air filtration systems, the better to cut down on germs and make residents feel more comfortable gathering.

Sail-shaped tower Olympia makes a dramatic skyline statement in DUMBO, and the apartments and amenities are positioned to make the most of spectacular views. Among them is a private outdoor tennis court, the highest of its kind in New York and directly overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge. To further up one's game, the building also offers a state-of-the-art gym by Gronk Fitness as well as indoor and outdoor lap pools.

Squash Court
138-Willoughby-Street-01 Squash court (Evan Joseph)
All over New York, a number of luxury buildings have incorporated squash courts into their amenity packages. Brooklyn Point takes that one step further with a court designed by InteractiveSQUASH, which tracks every move, offers real-time coaching, and allows players to log their progress in an app.

252-South-Street-01 Bowling alley (Evan Joseph)
Throughout New York, condos and rentals alike have added bowling lanes to their amenity packages. These allow groups to line up and get a game in without leaving home. However, the two-lane bowling alley at One Manhattan Square encourages a stronger spirit of competition.

53-West-53rd-Street-01 Sports simulator (DBOX)
Traditional golf simulators offer the ability to play the world's most famous golf courses without leaving home. However, the aboutGOLF simulator at 53W53 goes even further to up one's game by offering three-dimensional objects within the game that affect play. Also, if one doesn't feel like golfing today, it offers a number of add-ons that can be played with additional equipment.

Multi-Sport Simulator
Multi-sports simulator
As popular as sports like baseball, soccer, football, and hockey are, it isn't feasible to set up dedicated space for them in a residential building. The next best thing is a golf simulator with multi-sport capabilities, and players in Madison Square Park Tower's simulator room can enjoy everything from golf to basketball to hockey to shooting to zombie dodgeball.

Indoor half-pipe skate park Skate park (Jonathan Robles)
Shortly after skateboarding debuted as an Olympic sport at the 2020 Summer Games, mega-development Waterline Square unveiled its half-pipe skate park, the first of its kind in a residential building. The space is enhanced by a custom mural by artist and native New Yorker Valentino Mikalef, and the building offers skateboards and helmets to borrow.

Half Olympic-sized indoor pool
At 50 meters long, roughly the size of a football field, Olympic-sized pools are a little large for most New York City buildings. However, the London Terrace Towers complex in West Chelsea is famous for its half Olympic-sized pool, part of an amenity package that also includes steam rooms, saunas, and a private gym.

Indoor padel court Padel court (Adrian Gaut)
In recent years, racquet sports like pickleball and padel have grown in popularity. The city has no shortage of pickleball courts in public parks, but supertall 111 West 57th Street has incorporated a padel court into its amenity package, much to the delight of residents: Developer Michael Stern told the Washington Post, "We have this insane 82-foot indoor swimming pool in the building and residents probably use the padel court 10 times more."

505 West 43rd Street bike room
In New York, biking is as much a form of transportation as a form of exercise. As such, many buildings have incorporated bike rooms into their amenity package. 505 W 43, a new condominium located along the new Tenth Avenue bike lane and close to the Hudson River Greenway, takes that one step further by offering storage to bike owners and a bike share program to those who might like to take a ride without making a purchase.
