A rooftop deck is an outdoor space located on the roof of a large building. Most buildings have access to the roof and it has become increasingly common that the property owner remodels it into usable space, perhaps by adding lights, plants, seating and other decor. Some rooftop decks even have a pool!
Access to a rooftop deck, if there is one, is almost always limited to the tenants that rent in a particular building. Some apartments, especially luxury apartments, may have private access to rooftop outdoor spaces, but most rooftop decks are communal.
A rooftop deck seems like an awesome amenity to be included with your apartment. Let's take a look at some of both the pros and cons of renting a building with a rooftop deck.
Rooftop decks are usually located on the flat surface at the very top of the building. However, some rooftop decks may be located on one of the higher floors and surrounded on two or more sides by the top floors of the building.
Rooftop decks are usually decorated very poshly with many comfortable amenities — perfect for watching the sunset as shown in the photo above.
