The meaning of home has undeniably changed over the last year and, as a result, we’re beginning to see new trends emerge in luxury buildings all across the country. As developers respond to current conditions, they are coming up with creative ways to ensure that high-end condo and apartment projects adapt to the times. Here are a few ways this will happen in 2021.
On-Demand Health Services
With the growing popularity of home wellness features, some luxury buildings started offering in-house medical services a few years ago, but until recently, it was relatively rare. Now, however, on-demand health services are poised to become the next big thing in high-end development projects. Residents who want the ultimate peace of mind can expect to benefit from on-site medical facilities, as well as staff doctors, nurses and nutritionists.
Accessory Office Spaces
It’s quite common for exclusive buildings to have accessory units that residents can purchase for the use of staff or guests. In the future, we can expect similar units to be designed and marketed as private office spaces, where one can benefit from having a quiet workspace that’s only an elevator ride away. As remote work appears to be a permanent shift for many, this is sure to be an in-demand feature.
Touchless technology has become a must-have feature for residential buildings, from elevators and doors to package delivery services. In the coming year, residents will increasingly be able to move throughout their building without having to touch a surface or come into direct contact with anyone, thanks to automatic doors, electronic key fobs and facial recognition technology.
More Outdoor Areas
For city dwellers, there’s no such thing as too much outdoor space, and developers are taking note. In addition to private balconies and large communal terraces, the next generation of luxury buildings will focus on connecting with nature, complete with parks and gardens that residents can enjoy without having to leave the premises.
