Outdoor Spaces

Think gardens, terraces, courtyards or any place where residents can gather outside in a passive space and relax.

Package Service

With the advent of e-commerce, comes lots more packages and has made package service (whether lockers, room, or valet package delivery) an increasingly popular amenity.

Swimming Pool

A swimming pool is the perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day at work, which is why many renters like the idea of having one in the complex itself.

Fitness Center or Gym

A fitness center is a great way for residents to stay in shape without having to pay for a gym membership outside the complex.

Workspaces

For people working from home, communal workspaces within the apartment complex can be very valuable.

Walking Trails

Walking trails within the apartment complex is another great way to stay fit and active without having to travel too far. It also gives you a chance to enjoy fresh outdoor air as you stay in shape.

Dog Park

For those with four-legged companions, dog parks within the apartment complex are a huge benefit. Your pets have the freedom and space to run around and enjoy the company of other animals.

Spa

In addition to spas for your pet, some apartments have spa rooms where you can BYO (bring your own) massage therapist. This is usually seen in very upscale high-rise buildings near major business districts.

Playgrounds

If you have children, a playground may be an important amenity to look for in an apartment complex.

Car Parking

Adequate apartment car parking is certainly considered an amenity. If you drive a car, and have ever had to drive around due to lack of parking available, you’ll know what we mean here. In many neighborhoods, car parking is critical.

Bike Parking

Avid bikers rejoice. Whether in a major downtown or suburb, if you rely on your bike for work or pleasure, having adequate bike parking is critical. Ideally, you’ll want to have a room or designated spot where the bike won’t interfere with others.

Theatres

While less common today, some apartment complexes have large TVs or projectors where you can relax with a friend and enjoy a good movie.

How important are Community Amenities?

No community will have every possible amenity, and few, if any amenities will likely be among the most important reasons for choosing one community over another, but they can add value and convenience.

It will be quite rare to find an apartment community with all these amenities so you should prioritize which are most important to you. Keep in mind, you can often choose to rent in a community that is conveniently located nearby many of the amenities listed above.
