Pool Superlatives

Every buyer has a checklist of “must haves” and “nice to haves” when searching for their new condo.  While a pool often ends up on the “nice to have” list, every year there are New England summer days where it certainly feels much more like a “must have” amenity.  

Luckily, with the new construction building boom, buyers have more options than ever when seeking a residence with a pool.  This month, we have curated a collection of condos with pool access and hope you’ll read on for the Burbs to Boston Pool Superlatives.

While just one of its amenities, the 75 foot competition length pool is one of the best you’ll find in the city for those looking to get their laps in. Accented by soaring ceilings and complete with towel service, residents can reward themselves after completing their work out with a dip in the hot tub.

Harbor Towers

While the Harbor Towers have been a part of the Boston skyline for nearly 40 years and have become recognizable icons of Boston’s waterfront, few are aware that residents enjoy a beautifully landscaped private pool.

The Intercontinental 

In addition to being a 4-star hotel, the Intercontinental Boston is home to some of the most luxurious condos on the Waterfront. Residents at the Intercontinental have the option to access to the hotel’s Health Club which features including a 45 foot heated indoor lap-pool overlooking the Rose Kennedy Greenway.

Best Pool Party


Echelon Seaport

Although still under construction, we are confident that at least one of the three pools at Echelon in Boston’s Seaport District will be the place to be for a lively scene. Whether at the Grand Pool Deck or Waterfall Pool Deck, if you aren’t a resident of the building you’ll want to make friends with someone who is for a coveted invite!
