When you’re searching for a new apartment, your biggest concern after the neighborhood and location might be the features and amenities offered both in the unit itself as well as the community. In 2023, people are interested in different amenities than they were in previous decades, and newly built apartment communities are reflective of those interests. Amenities like laundry rooms, fireplaces, and doormen have become outdated, whereas in-unit washers and dryers, ample storage, fitness centers, and pet allowances have increased in demand.

Here are several more apartment amenities residents actually want!

In-Unit Amenities
High-Speed Internet: In today's digital age, fast and reliable internet access is essential for work, entertainment, and staying connected. Providing high-speed internet service is highly valued by many apartment residents.
Vinyl/LVT flooring: Vinyl plank flooring is modern, sleek, and best of all, it’s waterproof and easy to clean.
Quartz countertops: They’re attractive, but more importantly, they are extremely durable and resistant to chipping and wear, and they’re also easy to clean.
Private balconies: Having a quiet space to step outside within your own apartment space is a feature most residents ask about. It’s also a perfect spot for growing a small herb, flower, or vegetable garden.

Community Amenities
Outdoor spaces: Access to outdoor spaces like rooftop gardens, balconies, courtyards, or communal patios provide residents with opportunities for fresh air, relaxation, and socialization. (And a resort-style pool will never go out of style!)
Firepits and outdoor kitchens offer spaces for cooking and socializing with friends outside when the weather is nice.
A community room, lounge, gaming area, and co-working or conference space: Again, spaces for working and socializing outside of the apartment foster a sense of community and have become popular in modern apartment communities.
Pet-friendly facilities: Many people have pets, and amenities like dog parks, pet washing stations, or pet-friendly walking paths are highly appreciated by residents with furry friends.
Fitness center: A well-equipped, 24-hour fitness center or gym within the complex allows residents to exercise conveniently in their own community without having to pay membership fees to an outside facility. This can include cardio machines, weightlifting equipment, and even on-demand classes.

Security Features
Parking: Safe and convenient parking facilities, parking garages, and individual, one-car garage options are popular among apartment residents, especially in areas where street parking may be limited.
Access-controlled entry: A safe, secure community means never having to worry about who’s wandering the halls at night. Because most apartments no longer provide a doorman, access-controlled entry ensures residents are safe at all hours.
Bike storage: Encouraging eco-friendly transportation options, such as providing secure bike storage areas appeals to residents who enjoy cycling.
Package delivery services: As online shopping continues to grow, having a system in place to securely receive and store packages, such as a 24-hour mail room, is a valuable amenity.
