From an amenities perspective, several of these new developments boast highly-coveted modern conveniences that some of the city’s older buildings do not offer. One of the best ways to ensure that a full-service building remains competitive in this unique market is to incorporate functionality throughout the common areas. Aside from overall cleanliness, a building’s amenity spaces are a huge selling point for purchasers. These additional features can range from children’s playrooms, pet salons and decked-out resident lounges to roof decks, fitness studios and bowling alleys. Read the rest of this entry »
