Contributing to a Quality Lifestyle

Amenities and Top Ten ListIn recent articles I’ve covered many of the essentials pertaining to the process before and while you buy your new home or condominium to ensure you live in the best way imaginable. Enjoying a quality lifestyle is also composed of the experiences you have beyond the walls of your own home, as well as within the nearby vicinity. As we’ve explored, it’s important for your builder to consider how you live and how best to address your lifestyle requirements. By truly understanding who our purchasers are, we can cater to your wants and desires through the selection and implementation of onsite amenities that will be right for you and will add value to your new home. We also serve your needs by choosing desirable locations in which to build, and by selecting areas that have an established infrastructure.

Let’s start with community or “common” amenities, which are part of a condominium experience. Common amenities can be both within the building itself or part of the surrounding landscape, and are designed to enhance the smaller sizes that are often a fact of life in today’s condo suite. You can see the positive impact of these elements as soon as you come home. The lobby is your grand entrance, and it also serves as your guests’ first impression. Most new condos incorporate a concierge for security purposes, and to help with day-to-day duties such as package delivery, welcoming guests and general inquiries pertaining to the building.

Other instances of places where you live beyond your own condo suite include a party room and fitness centre. These address space constraints and allow owners to entertain more people and give them access to workout facilities in the comfort of their own building. Exterior condo amenities might even include a landscaped terrace for al fresco dining or a green rooftop with communal barbeques, as many bylaws do not allow for personal barbeques on balconies.

The design of low-rise and mid-rise master-planned communities is another great example of the various amenities that we as builders will conceive and incorporate, so homeowners have a better quality lifestyle. A builder might include an outdoor gathering spot such as a gazebo or pergola, and in the case of large scale communities, a playground, park and even a trail system. The idea is to create a true sense of camaraderie through inclusion of places where people can gather and interact with their neighbours.

Further to these built amenity spaces, are the neighbourhood hotspots that contribute to the convenience and relaxation of homeowners. For instance, when building in the city, a good idea would be to take into consideration proximity to restaurants, grocery stores, public transportation and/or highways. Nearby local infrastructure adds value to any community, as well as contributing to the extension of day-to-day enjoyment beyond the walls of one’s home or condo. If you can leave your home and enjoy your favourite activities and pastimes only steps from your front door, we have absolutely understood how to address your needs and contribute to a better quality of life.
