JUNE 5, 2015 – 101 BEDFORD IN THE NEWS – RIDICULOUS AMENITY ALERT By Hana R. Alberts
From Bocce to Dog Spas, NYC Rentals With Outrageous Perks
If you’re a New York City rental building these days, a mere communal terrace and one-room gym just won’t cut it. To charge the kinds of extravagant rents that are de rigueur, there have to be equally extravagant amenities. Think arcade games. Resort-style cabanas. Bocce courts and bowling alleys. A recording studio. A separate area for yoga and spinning. Lush decks with outdoor fireplaces and barbecue grills. Oh, and lots of pools. Luckily, buildings are stepping up to the challenge. Below, a selection of the ones with the most over-the-top amenities. Did we miss a biggie? …
The Karl Fischer-designed rental building that swallowed an entire Williamsburg block is so huge because it has so much stuff packed inside it. 101 Bedford has a gym and a pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, and spa rooms (sure), but it also houses a wine cellar, a game room (with a golf simulator), a screening room, a soundproof recording and photography studio, a business center and conference room, a library with fireplace, on-site parking, ATMs, and vending machines, and a pet spa (a.k.a. a “canine-cleaning station”).
The rooftop is absolutely massive and even has hammocks and private outdoor dining areas with BBQ grills for dinner parties. Plus, the building just opened up in-house photography and recording studios—and it now has it’s own kickball team.
