The Cotton Mill, a condo/apartment combo in the Warehouse District has a half-acre landscaped interior courtyard with sculpture, shaded seating areas, a pool, and a party-ready set-up with three gas grills.

↑ The Union Lofts, a CBD structure that dates back to 1927 when it was the Western Union Telegraph Building, got a much-needed makeover and is now home to 33 lofts. The rooftop terrace, sprinkled with bamboo trees, has a hot tub and lounge chairs, and tables. There's also rooftop wi-fi here, making it effortless to post a million selfies and sunset pics.

↑ In the Warehouse District, the Woodward Loft apartments has a rooftop deck with a pool, clubhouse, and barbecue area. For the dog-owners, there's a small grassy area near the parking lot that's not quite dog park status, but it is fenced off.

↑ On top of the 511 Marigny apartment building is a rooftop deck with views of the Mississippi River and the downtown skyline.

↑ There are two rooftop decks, both with river and downtown views, at the Rice Mill Lofts in Bywater with a 26-foot dining table and "cabana lounge seating." There's also a 55-foot lap pool with an "Italian citrus grove," and an outdoor grill area.

Gravier Place Apartments in the CBD has a rooftop deck with a pool, seating, a barbecue area, and the view isn't too shabby.

↑ Besides being a hop away from Bayou St. John, the American Can's outdoor amenities include an "Olympic-style" swimming pool and a landscaped courtyard.
