Hoop Happiness: Apartments with Basketball Courts

Do you wish March Madness lasted all year? Does your idea of formal wear include baggy nylon shorts that make the same swish as the net after a free throw? Is every piece of crumpled paper destined for the wastebasket another chance to work on your jump shot? You’re not alone, jerseyed friend. But instead of using your notes from last week’s meeting, how about playing on an actual court? While once considered an extravagance, basketball courts are becoming much more common at apartment complexes around the country. No matter where you live, chances are that you’ll be able to find a great place to live that also has the court of your dreams. Take a look at the apartments below to get an idea of what’s out there.

The Victory

New York City, New York

Rent: around $3300

New York City is known for being massive but crammed-in, having tiny apartments at the same time as the city’s boundaries keep stretching outward. The Victory apartment building, on the other hand, will broaden your horizons when it comes to basketball in the city. You no longer have to find friends to play a pick-up game outside, because this building has a heated, well-lit indoor half court that you can use any time of the year. Rents here start at $2,600, which is pretty reasonable for living in the heart of the city.


Sunset Summit Apartments

Portland, Oregon

Rent: N/A

It’s 3 a.m. and you can’t resist the urge to dribble a ball and make a few shots. What do you do at that hour? At the Sunset Summit Apartments, there are multiple indoor basketball courts that are open 24 hours a day. You’re never limited to certain hours here, and the staff will even provide you with your own ball and towels if you forgot yours at home across the complex. Rents here start at $1,000, which is a small price to pay in Portland for full-time court access.


Heritage Apartments

Live Oak, Texas

Rent: around $900

Texas typically has great weather, and plenty of apartments there have outdoor courts. But when gale-force winds are blowing or tropical storms decide to dump precipitation, an indoor court is a necessity. The Heritage Apartments in Live Oak, a neighborhood suburb of San Antonio, have a full-size indoor court that is well-lit with wall-to-wall clerestory windows and bright lamps. Rents here start at $660, which is average for the area and amenities offered.


The Grand Plaza

Chicago, Illinois

Rent: about $2400

With a name like Grand Plaza, you’d expect these apartments to be the site of a Jay Gatsby party, but this high-rise complex has plenty of opportunities for athleticism. You won’t need a gym membership when you move here, because the basketball half-court will be just a few floors down from you. The staff also provides complimentary basketballs and towels for you to use. Rents here start at around $2,000, which is on the lower end for the neighborhood.


No matter if you live on the East Coast, the West Coast, or smack-dab in between, you can find an apartment that allows you to indulge in your NBA fantasies on the court, not just from your couch. When you start your search, try to find a building or complex run by a property management company; they’ll work to keep the court in tip-top shape, especially if it is indoors. Now, if only they hired on-site referees…
