One of the major selling points of a condominium is its amenities. These are those facilities and services that are offered to residents. The great competition within the condominium subsector has led to some amenities being so widespread that they are now considered a must-have, at the same time developers continue to tie in extra amenities to make their condos more attractive. Common amenities include
Are you interested in working out at an amazing gym in your condo? The need to look after your health is paramount. It is for this reason that condos have an in-house fitness center. It relieves you of the inconvenience of having to drive all the way to your gym. Most if not all condos come with a well-equipped gym. To provide a holistic fitness experience the fitness center also includes a yoga room and some of the more modern ones even have massage rooms.
A swimming pool has become one of the must-haves for any condo. After all, nothing beats having a swimming pool an elevator ride away. Some condos even take this to the extreme with swimming pools in every unit. It allows you the convenience of taking a dip after a stressful day at work or a workout session at the gym. Apart from larger pools some developers even include a sauna and spa. You can check out condos with swimming pools here.
Every once in a while you will need to host a party. A party room is set aside by developers to allow residents to hold parties and other events without worrying about space. A party room is usually a large furnished room. This room is normally fitted with a bar, kitchen, and a TV screen. Some party rooms even come with professional catering services.
Having friends or family over can be a headache especially if you have many guests. Many condos in Toronto have guest suites to cater for such situations. The suites are fully furnished and can be rented by residents for their guests. These suites also come with parking slots for the guests.
Concierge services have become a must-have for condos in Toronto. Just like we have an online concierge to answer your questions, a condo’s concierge can direct visitors and answer the residents’ questions.
While seemingly unimportant they cater for resident need and enhance the experience of living in the condo. Whether it is booking a guest suite or the party room. They also provide round the clock security. By monitoring everyone who comes and goes they ensure that residents can rest easy in the knowledge that someone is watching out for them.
To attract more buyers developers are including unique amenities to set their buildings apart from the rest. While these amenities range from one developer to another, we have noticed that this growing trend includes the following amenities.
1. Rooftop Pool
The indoor swimming pool has become a norm among condos in Toronto. For this reason, newer buildings have a rooftop swimming pool complete with a sundeck. It not only allows the residents to lounge in the sun but also offers stunning views. Some buildings are even pushing this further by having an infinity pool to provide the ultimate rooftop swimming experience.
2. Pet Centers
Pets are important members of some residents household. By catering to the needs of the pets, developers are able to attract buyers with pets. Pet centers include grooming and washing areas.
The only one thing beats being on the rooftop on a starry night is an observatory. To this end, some condo buildings come with an observatory. While this is not really a must have, stargazers will surely be attracted by the fact that the rooftop is a gateway to the cosmos.
