Apartment buildings exemplify one type of multifamily dwelling, and newer apartment buildings often include modern amenities. Following is a list of some of the extras that are trending in newly built apartments.
1. Workstations – Some apartments provide Wi-Fi-equipped workstations in common areas to satisfy the needs of renters who may wish to work remotely, but require some quiet to do so.
2. Pet spas – Builders are finding that owners want luxury for themselves–and their pets. Some new buildings offer grooming services and exclusive areas for renters to exercise their pets.
3. Green leases – A selection of newer apartments are LEED certified and energy efficient, making them more affordable for tenants. To live in these buildings, renters must sign “green leases,” committing to practices such as composting, recycling, and using public transportation.
