Perhaps the biggest draw of living in Los Angeles (aside from the occasional celebrity sightings) is the near perfect year-round weather. Even in January, while the rest of the country is bundled up in scarves and puffy winter coats, Angelenos can be found soaking up the sun amid 70-degree temperatures.

If you’re shopping for a new construction condo or apartment in the City of Angels, an outdoor pool is likely high on your list of desired amenities. Whether you prefer lounging poolside with a cocktail in hand or swimming laps for your morning workout, these seven luxury residences have just what you need in a rooftop oasis.
