I Spy Seasons


From floor to ceiling windows that allow sunset views from the comfort of your living room, to rooftops and balconies where friends and family gather to watch the leaves change colour, the seamless blending of beautiful design and architecture with extensive views is what adds to the excitement of the fall season. Developers and architects see the value in constructing outdoor areas with clear sightlines and are consciously designing outdoor spaces for residents to enjoy all year round

Abode2 takes in the views at up residential towers across the US that feature incredible terraces and rooftops that are prime for leaf peeping as summer comes to an end. These developments feature outdoor spaces expertly designed to fit residents’ needs for year-round enjoyment, and serve as great perches for prime leaf-peeping with great park views, so fall foliage will be prime from the comfort of home.

As part of 1105 West Peachtree’s $530 million tri-tower, mixed-use development, 40 West 12th is a 64-residence luxury condo tower located along 12th Street in Midtown Atlanta.

Developers Selig Development alongside joint ventures with The Rockefeller Group, and design firm Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio (RJTR), prioritized the residential tower’s amenities by creating experiences that mimic those of a five-star resort.

Among the many amenities at the property, the 1 acre Sky Terrace acts as a small park between buildings. Surrounded by trees and open greenery for lounging, the Sky Terrace offers an amazing spot for residents to get some sun while looking out over the city. Whether residents enjoy watching the sunset from the Sky Terrace, or admiring the fall foliage right out their living room balcony, 40 West 12th offers the perfect locations to watch the seasons change over the Atlanta city skyline.

The Four Seasons Private Residences New Orleans

Located in the heart of the south, The Four Seasons New Orleans is the transformation of one of the city’s most recognizable and iconic towers – into a premier hotel and residential address, marking the first hotel-serviced residential building, the first luxury high-rise condominium, and the first to offer views, amenities and services of this scale and magnitude in New Orleans. Beginning 211 feet above ground level on the 19th floor, the property houses 81 condominium residences ranging from one-to-three bedrooms and a select collection of penthouses on the building’s crowning floors, allowing residents to enjoy unprecedented panoramic views from the highest residential elevations in the city.

Residents have access to 22,500 square feet of private amenities where they can watch the seasons change, including the entire landmarked 29th floor, which has an elegant bar and lounge overlooking the Mississippi River. Other vantage points can be found in the newly built amenities wing, which houses the outdoor 75-foot pool and hot tub. This stunning open-air pool deck has tons of seating options including rentable poolside cabanas where residents can lounge and experience five-star-level services while admiring the sweeping Mississippi River backdrop. The pool is adjacent to Chemin à la Mer, the restaurant by adored and famed chef Donald Link. Owners can also enjoy the Four Seasons lobby bar and restaurant, which overlooks 7,500 square feet of private gardens. Topping off the building's transformation, The Four Seasons has reimagined the old notorious rotating rooftop nightclub at the building, previously dubbed the Plimsoll Club, as a city-focused museum and observation deck named VUE Orleans. It's the only destination in NOLA with 360-degree views.

547 West 47th Street, The West Residence Club

The West Residence Club at 547 West 47th Street is a transformative, move-in-ready luxury condominium situated in the heart of Manhattan's west side. Located on 11th Avenue between 47th and 48th Streets, the recently-completed development features 219 studio to two-bedroom residences (with turnkey home packages available) and brings more than 30,000 square feet of curated amenities and lifestyle services to Hell’s Kitchen. In their first NYC residential project, the critically acclaimed Dutch-based innovators Concrete designed the building inside and out to maximize light, outdoor space and views. Between the residences and the extensive indoor/outdoor communal spaces which span multiple levels of the 12-story building, 547 West 47th Street is an ideal place to watch the seasons change.

At the crown of the building, residents can admire sweeping views of the Hudson River and Midtown skyline from the expansive rooftop level's swimming pool, multiple outdoor kitchens, dining and lounge areas, as well as more intimate spaces like the private cabanas. For more active residents, the double-height, state-of-the-art fitness centre curated by The Wright Fit provides the opportunity to welcome the milder seasons while practicing morning sun salutations or stretching on the outdoor fitness terrace that opens directly off the gym. Just beyond the double-height lobby lounge is The Glasshouse, a freestanding glass-enclosed library with a fireplace, living room and co-working table. Designed to be enjoyed year-round, the solarium-like space's location at the centre of the building overlooking a serene interior courtyard garden allows natural light to pour in and creates a bright, airy and energetic environment that makes residents feel as if they're outdoors.
