Apartment living is an increasingly attractive option for South Africans wanting to live in the heart of the city and enjoy a low-maintenance – yet luxurious – lock-up-and-go lifestyle. So what does the future hold for apartment living? Here are five trends we’re likely to see more of.
1. Green living
While this trend has been around for some time, it’s set to become an even more important factor as awareness of environmental issues grows – and demand for eco-friendly features increases. Green features may include the use of sustainable materials, energy-efficient lighting and appliances, rooftop gardens, recycling facilities and more.
2. Access to amenities
As in the case of One on Whiteley in Melrose Arch, we’ll see more apartment developments forming part of mixed-use precincts, with residents having easy access to restaurants, fitness centres, retail stores, offices and co-working spaces.
3. Indoor-outdoor living
While developers are already bringing a sense of indoor-outdoor living to apartments through large windows, balconies and clever use of natural light, we’ll also see more of a focus on outdoor areas – think carefully-designed landscaping, walkable areas and shared green spaces.
Along with ever-improving connectivity to cater for our tech-driven lifestyles, apartments will have more energy-efficient features and appliances as well as increasingly advanced security measures.
5. Lifestyle perks
Apartment developments will continue to offer more (and better) lifestyle services to owners and tenants e.g. rooftop pools and lounges, fully equipped gyms, spa facilities and more.
