Rental Building News and Offers

Many events have been postponed, if not outright cancelled, due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the U.S. Open is right on schedule and entering the last days. Spectators are not allowed in the stands, but it would be inaccurate to say that the tennis tournament is taking place without fans - on the contrary, tennis lovers all over the world will be tuning in tonight to watch Jennifer Brady versus Naomi Osaka, followed closely by Serena Williams versus Victoria Azarenka in the women’s semi-finals. On the men’s side, Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev recently emerged victorious from the quarter finals.

Between the excitement of the U.S. Open and a glut of time freed up, now is the time for tennis fans to buckle down and improve their game. Full-season and single-play permits are not required at city parks’ tennis courts, but these can get crowded quickly and cause players to lose valuable playtime. The following buildings, though, count residents-only tennis courts among their impressive amenity packages. These will help any player slice, serve, and ace their way into center court.
