Sky-High Amenities

One of the many perks of city living is the rooftop of our apartment buildings. Summer is here and the rooftop decks are open and ready for entertaining and relaxing. 

Aura Pentagon City features two pools on rooftops along with sundecks with grills and seating areas. 

Not only do our 2401 Pennsylvania Avenue and Swift Petworth communities offer gorgeous apartments in NW DC; they’re also perfectly located for spectacular views of the Fourth of July fireworks. 

Each year residents and their guests gather to enjoy food, fun, and fireworks all from the convenience of their own apartment building. At The Swift in Petworth, there are commercial-grade grills that may be reserved for your entertaining needs and a cozy fire pit to warm up the cooler nights. 2401 Pennsylvania Ave. treats its residents to some of the best views of Georgetown and Foggy Bottom from its rooftop terrace creating a calming oasis away from the bustling city.

Only a few miles outside of DC in downtown Chevy Chase, MD, you’ll find The Highlands of Chevy Chase. These two sister buildings sit in the well-landscaped neighborhood of Friendship Village and both feature rooftop sundecks with swimming pools. Shaded tables line the sundecks to provide a comfortable outdoors for all visitors. The large swimming pools are appointed with lush greenery and relaxing lawn chairs to provide the ultimate relaxing experience. The beautiful tree-lined views sprinkled with the cityscape provide a unique panoramic view. Both communities treat their residents to a refreshing atmosphere suitable for all ages high above the busy city. 

It’s great to take advantage of these amenities during the hot summers of Washington, DC, and Maryland. A rooftop deck and swimming pool can make a “staycation” feel like a true getaway. For more information on Polinger Company and apartments to rent, visit polingerco.com.
