PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh has its fair share of ice rinks between PPG Place, Schenley Park, and the new rink at the Hunt Armory — but a new rink has opened on top of a downtown building.

The rink isn’t open to the public, however — it’s for the people who live in the apartments known as Kaufmann’s Grand.

The rink isn’t even made of ice.

The developers bought a synthetic material that replicates real ice, and you can use real skates on it.

It’s also easier to build and maintain — no Zamboni required.
