The Construction Institute reveals the hottest trends for multifamily housing
More people are looking to exercise, take a break to walk their dog, or bike when possible instead of using transit. Whether as a shared amenity or a private feature, the ability to step outdoors into the fresh air for work, play, or relaxation will be a critical component of post-pandemic living.
Smart, Touchless Tech
From parcel storage and pick-up to security systems, elevators and doormen/concierge services, the incorporation of touch free technology is set to reimagine these experiences. Extend this to scheduled maintenance visits, reservable conferencing space and amenity areas, as well as thermal comfort and building management system, and technology quickly becomes the most versatile feature of post pandemic life.
As multifamily boilings are asked to be workplaces and learning environments as well, new amenities such as recording rooms, craft rooms or maker spaces, and in=house bars or cafes are becoming checklist items for many residents. The ability to stay closer to home and host a “paint-and-sip” event, or hop downstairs for drinks and appetizers rather than traveling out seems increasingly popular.
Authentic, Healthy Interiors
From natural, environmentally conscious materials to health and wellness spaces, improved HVAC systems, and water purification systems, thee is a trend toward authentic, personalized interior environments. While popular pre-COVID, certainly post pandemic they will be even more valuable.
Existing housing should ensure their establishments keep up with the needs of today’s residents.
Incorporating a fresh design into a new construction or a simple upgrade to an existing property can dramatically improve the environment, quality of life for tenants. It will also go a long way towards keeping the occupancy rate high.
