Best Apartment Buildings with Pools in Philadelphia

Philadelphia-native, Will Smith, perfectly coined the city’s summertime slogan. Summer-summer-summertime…what better place “to sit back and unwind” than at a rooftop pool while lounging with a few of your friends?

With private, poolside real estate charting into the millions downtown, your best bet for a summer swim is nabbing your own unit in one of Philly’s hottest, new apartment buildings. Outfitted with stunning pools and skyline views, here’s a list of the 11 best buildings to call home if you’re ready to summer in serious style.

Goldtex  This modern apartment building, located at 315 N. 12th St, boasts a sleek roof deck pool with unmatched views of the city skyline. Situated in the Loft District, this Rooftop pool is a multi-level haven in the sky. Whether you grab a private cabana with friends or sunbathe solo in a lounge chair, an afternoon at the Goldtex is the perfect way to unwind.


Park Towne Place Located at 2200 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, this pool offers high-tech underwater speakers and Center City views. A row of poolside cabanas–each with their own private flat screen and refrigerator–look out onto cherry-popsicle-red umbrellas and, of course, a welcomingly cool pool. Just above the pool area, you’ll find the Skyline Lounge complete with bar, outdoor catering kitchen, and contemporary gas fire pit.


1500 Locust Simply known as the Panorama Club, this rooftop oasis boasts the best views in all of the city. Steps away from the Theater District and Rittenhouse Square, the indoor Olympic-size pool offers stunning views in an enclosed, year-round pool with open-air sundeck.



The Sterling Located at 1815 JFK Boulevard just north of Rittenhouse Square, The Sterling’s newly renovated interiors come complete with a stunning social deck. Of course, there’s the glamorous rooftop swimming pool, but don’t ignore the conversation lounge and outdoor fire pit. Home to the largest City Fitness in the city, you can sculpt your summer bod downstairs before heading to the roof for a dip.


Dalian on the Park With expansive views featuring both the Art Museum to the west and the city skyline to the east, this infinity pool overlooking the Benjamin Franklin Parkway is a showstopper. Located just above the building’s impressive, on-site Whole Foods Market, the 30,000 square foot Sky Deck features outdoor televisions, a year-round lounge with outdoor heaters, and a pollution-battling green roof.


3601 Market This rooftop oasis features a heated saltwater pool to help you extend your summer season without chlorine wreaking havoc on your highlights. Bonuses include a fire pit, grilling area, and private cabanas featuring flat-screen TVs.



The St. James Lining Washington Square, The St. James is one of this neighborhood’s most prestigious addresses. Their 60-foot pool can be enjoyed year-round while their spacious sun deck wraps around the perimeter of the building’s state-of-the-art fitness center.



Domus Nestled within a showstopping courtyard, this immaculate second-floor pool rivals any rooftop respite. The University City stunner includes a BBQ area for grilling, outdoor fireplaces, and pristine landscaping for a truly exceptional experience.  



Fairmount @ Brewerytown Part rooftop swim deck, part dog park, life at the intersection of Master & 31st Street is the pinnacle of pet-friendly living. Enjoy the high-life with your pet right by your side! These 162 luxury lofts share an enviable outdoor space that is as design-centric as it is dog-loving.
