A beautiful amenity space just footsteps away from one’s morning coffee is a luxury most residents would love to consider when deciding which property to call home, which is why a well-maintained swimming pool can captivate potential nest seekers, while increasing the investment of current HOA owners.
A swimming pool is a rare and valuable amenity for any residential building, and a real treat in the summer. Over the last 20 years, it seems that the amount of pools in the city has grown tremendously. Stuart Roaker, past president of the National Pool Management Association and owner of the Pool Therapist on Staten Island estimates that a majority of luxury condominium developments in New York and New Jersey these days include a pool in their design.
It is one of the more popular amenities in the Garden State to attract buyers. Residents of the 12-story, 206 unit Watermark at the Hudson in North Bergen can head to an indoor pool in inclement weather, and in downtown Jersey City, The Beacon features both an indoor and an outdoor pool. The Grand at Diamond Beach in Cape May County not only features a beachfront infinity pool but a fenced in private beach for residents. Hudson Tea, Maxwell Place on the Hudson and 1450 Washington, feature an array of amenities including a rooftop pool and a Jacuzzi, Horizon House in Fort Lee has a pair of pools, Edgewater’s 168-unit One Hudson Park has an indoor lap pool, and Society Hill at University Heights, Society Hill in Mahwah, and all the Trump condo properties in New Jersey offer either indoor or outdoor pools for a relaxing dip.
Knowledge of swimming pools is the best equipment you can have when it comes to maintaining them. Commercial swimming pools generally provide most maintenance equipment on site; these swimming pools need constant care and are more than likely managed by an amenities management company.
Pool pros say that to maintaining a beautiful swimming facility does not come with challenges.
