High-rise living offers some notable benefits that make it an attractive option for many home buyers. Once you consider the upside of the high-rise lifestyle, all you need to do is find the perfect one. We can help you do that.
Benefits of living in a luxury high-rise include upscale amenities, gorgeous views, and more. Whether you’re looking to move out of a traditional house or a low-rise apartment, luxury high-rises have no shortage of outstanding benefits.
Here are the top 5 that we believe tower above the rest.
1. Breathtaking Views
Ok, let’s get to the obvious one first. If you’re considering a luxury high-rise, the astonishing view is likely near the top of your list. And why shouldn’t it be? Part of the appeal of living in a bustling and beautiful city is being able to take it all it in.
This is certainly much easier to do high above the city or beach, as opposed to closer to the ground level. Spectacular views often come at a premium price. Apartments and condos on higher floors generally warrant a higher dollar figure than those on lower levels. However, if a sprawling view of the city, river or Gulf is something you can’t live without, the additional cost is well worth it.
2. Close Proximity to High-End Restaurants and Entertainment
In most cities, the best entertainment venues and restaurants are located in the downtown area. For luxury high-rise residents, this gives them convenient access to upscale restaurants and premium entertainment. This can be as short as a 10-minute walk or quick ride to the best the city has to offer.
Entertainment options are vast and include:
Top-tier sporting events
Concerts by high-profile performers
First-run broadway shows
The same is true for the wide variety of fine dining. Whether you’re in the mood for a steak prepared by a world-class chef or sensational sushi, your appetite will be satisfied.
3. Easier to Manage Than a House
Being a homeowner is a major life milestone for many people, but it doesn’t come without problems. Through physical and financial upkeep, owning a house can create some headaches that don’t come with living in a luxury high-rise.
Big yard? You’ll need to manage it yourself or pay someone to do it for you. Roof or air conditioner needs to be replaced? You’re on the hook for the cost and hiring someone to do the job. When you live in a high-rise, these concerns aren’t present. In many cases, upkeep and maintenance on major components is left up to the property management company in charge of operating the high-rise.
For this reason, most luxury high-rises are run by top property management companies. It’s still worth your time to conduct research on the company to ensure their reputation meets the highest standards.
4. Access to Luxurious Amenities
For many people already living the high-rise lifestyle, on-site amenities tops their list of best features. The convenience of these amenities certainly plays into their elevated perception. Just imagine, you can walk three blocks to a 5-star restaurant or take the elevator down to a restaurant of comparable quality. Most people are likely to choose option B.
Examples of world-class amenities you can find on-site at high-rises include:
Rooftop infinity-edge pools
Coffee shops and cafes
State-of-the-art fitness centers
Entertainment lounges, libraries and game rooms
Prioritize the amenities that are most important to you and be on the lookout for them. Don’t settle for less than the best for your life of luxury.
5. Building Relationships and Making New Friends
High-rise communities with access to luxury amenities give you a chance to attend gatherings, join clubs, meet your neighbors and make new friends. There is often a diverse social calendar associated with high-rise living, giving you multiple opportunities to get to know the people around you. Many high-rise units also offer clubs such as mah-jongg, poker and other card games.
Single-family home neighborhoods and low-rise complexes don’t normally offer these types of chances to get out and mingle with your residential counterparts. For example, Bonita Bay is home to the Tavira high-rise condo. If you select a unit in this luxury building, you’ll be able to take advantage of the following amenities and get to know your new friends in a more intimate setting:
Rooftop deck with 360-degree views, perfect for mingling with your new friends
Club room with a bar, piano and catering kitchen
Card room for weekly social activities
Billiard room to play with your friends
