Anyone have anything planned for this Sunday? Wait a second. Isn’t this Sunday the date of the biggest single-day event on any year’s sporting calendar?
For those New Yorkers lacking ducats for the Colossal Contest at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, the next best thing may be settling in at one of the luxe screening rooms and media centers in high-end Manhattan and Brooklyn residential buildings. Those with access to such settings know they blend super screens, luxuriant seating and a comfy ambience. Add sufficient beverages and grub to last four quarters plus an overlong halftime show, and you’re all set for an evening of gridiron glory.
11 Hoyt, Brooklyn
Welcoming first residents just last year, this downtown Brooklyn condominium features 55,000 square feet of extravagant amenities, among them a screening room in The Sky Club on the 32nd Floor. When there’s a break in the action, step to the windows for perspectives on brownstone Brooklyn, the Manhattan skyline and the East River, views almost as dramatic as the game itself.
Magnolia Dumbo, Brooklyn
If the hard-fought competition between the hash marks tempts you to zealously participate in a competition of your own, The Magnolia Club inside Magnolia Dumbo lets you break from the screen to shoot some pool on the club’s billiards table.
“Magnolia Dumbo offers one of the most extensive amenities packages for a luxury rental property in the sought-after Brooklyn neighborhood,” said Chris Wendel, handling leasing for the project on behalf of Douglas Elliman Development Marketing.
“In the Magnolia Club’s high-tech game room, residents will be able to watch the big game complete with bar seating, billiards table and a large screen console.
The Park Logia at 15 W 61st, Manhattan
MORE FOR YOU
With an aesthetic recalling the Upper West Side architecture of yesteryear, The Park Logia at 15 W 61 features five-star extras that include Pembrooke & Ives-designed condominium lobby and amenity spaces. Among those spaces is a screening room that seems lifted from a futuristic spaceship interior, with sky-high ceiling and sumptuous gray leather arm chairs and ottomans in tiered seating facing a giant TV screen.
The Solaire, Battery Park City
A brand new suite of COOKFOX-designed amenities is among the selling points of The Solaire. The verdant verdure of this property’s frondescence-filled Rooftop Garden above the Hudson is one of those crowd-pleasing amenities, Another is the media room, with a cozy ambience that invites residents to lounge on the curving pillowed sofa. It’s a space that feels more like a comfortable library than a raucous sports bar.
“The Solaire has been one of the most prominent residential buildings in Battery City since it opened in the early 2000s as the first LEED Gold high-rise residence in the United States,” says Aaron Goed, sales director of The Solaire with Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. “For major sporting events like the Super Bowl, residents can entertain family and friends in the media room and lounge, providing snacks in the adjacent catering kitchen.”
The Beacon at Garvies Point, Glen Cove, N.Y.
Brooklyn and Manhattan don’t have the market cornered on great viewing spaces. Outside the hustle and bustle of the city, this property on Long Island’s historic North Shore features amenities aplenty. Around the time of this Sunday’s Titanic Tilt, the most important of these is invariably the screening room. “Many buyers, especially from New York City, have been drawn to The Beacon,” says Grace Cannizzaro, director of sales at The Beacon with Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. “The Beacon’s glamorous screening room, catering kitchen and lounge areas offer the perfect spot for residents to enjoy sporting events, especially major events like the Super Bowl.”
