Features to Look For in an Upscale Apartment Community

Jan 17th, 2013

So you have made the decision to move out of your old place and into a luxury apartment home. Congratulations! If you play your cards right, you will be enjoying a life marked by convenience and extravagance in what seems like no time. Some advantageous things to look for in an upscale apartment community include:

In-Home Luxuries

Two rooms in which the opulence of an apartment home really shine through are the bathroom and the kitchen. When you are shopping for a luxury apartment home, pay close attention to these two rooms. A genuine luxury kitchen will be equipped with both high-quality countertops and lighting. A luxury master bathroom should be spacious, possibly featuring a double vanity or oversized dressing closets. The shower and/or tub should scream comfort, and there should be no shortage of mirrors.

A Slew of Community Amenities

As the resident of a luxury apartment, you will benefit from the shared use of high-class community amenities. Most upscale residential communities have a well-designed pool with sundeck; fully-equipped fitness center; and a posh lounge or other common area that is ideal for social gatherings.

Green Living

Extravagance may be a trademark of an upscale apartment community, but many luxury apartment communities make green living easy for their residents. Here at AMLI, we have taken up the ENERGY STAR® challenge, improving the energy efficiency of our buildings by ten percent or more.


To add even more convenience to your life, look for an apartment located in close proximity to the places you visit most frequently. Many luxury apartments are situated in fairly central locations, and others are located near public transit stops or highways that can get you to where you want to be in a swift manner. Think about what you want to be close to (the office, the supermarket, the gym, a school, friends, relatives), and choose an apartment with a location you would consider convenient relative to those places.


Well-Maintained Grounds

Regardless of whether you are returning home from a long day at work or a long day of travel, it can be both comforting and refreshing to return to a well-appointed property. Many upscale apartment community grounds are host to lush foliage, fountains, other water features, and impeccably groomed shrubs and flower beds. Choose a complex where you can experience the changing of leaves in autumn and the beauty of springtime blooms without ever having to pick up a rake or pruning shears.
