Luxury real estate owners in New York City have set the bar, now almost requiring hotel-like amenities in privately owned apartment buildings. Five-star concierge hunt down private jets, home décor, or the perfect gift at a moments notice…and why shouldn’t A-List clients have these fantastic luxuries?
Exclusive Manhattan apartment buildings are beginning to include private health spas and gyms with needs met by professional trainers and experts. This haute craze has been fueled by wealthy foreigners searching for luxurious pied-a-terre’s with amenities similar to hotel living (without all the unfamiliarity).
Concierge in exclusive apartment buildings are willing to go above and beyond for residents, helping them to stay comfortable and organized in the midst of their often-hectic lifestyles. A great example of such luxury buildings is the New York by Gehry, complete with swimming pool and sun deck, boxing studio, squash court, grilling terrace with cabanas, golf simulator, and much more.
