5 benefits of apartment living
If you’re thinking about an apartment as a first home, your ‘in’ to a sought-after suburb or as the perfect complement to your way of life, you’ll find plenty of reasons to opt for a lock-up-and-go lifestyle. Here are five of the best.
1. Safety and security
One of the reasons so many people choose apartment life is that there’s a lot to be said for having a neighbour on the other side of the wall. What’s more, most modern apartment blocks offer a range of security features. At Harbour Arch, for example, residents will enjoy complete peace of mind thanks to a state-of-the-art security system that will include access control at all entrance points, a centralised control centre, CCTV cameras throughout the precinct and number plate recognition in the secure parking area.
Modern developments offer so much more than apartment blocks of the past – everything from gyms, spas and pool decks to shared green spaces, laundry rooms and concierge services. Harbour Arch will not only offers a range of high-end amenities, including an exclusive rooftop garden and pool as well as a dedicated exercise area, but also shops, restaurants, upmarket bars, hotels and offices beside beautifully landscaped public spaces. The result is a sought-after environment where residents will be able to live, work, play, relax and stay.
Apartments typically have smaller footprints than houses, which means less time spent doing cleaning and maintenance and more time spent doing the things you love. What’s more, if the apartment you choose has a communal pool on the premises, you won’t be responsible for maintaining it – or anything else that’s shared by the rest of the block – which translates into even more time (not to mention money) saved.
Many modern apartment blocks and developments are designed with sustainable principles in mind, allowing you to play your part in protecting the environment. Harbour Arch is no different and will include refuse recycling, water-saving devices and rainwater harvesting, a centralised district cooling facility and low-energy LED lighting.
Getting to know your neighbours happens naturally when you’re living in an apartment as there are plenty of opportunities to bump into them – in the parking lot when you’re leaving for or arriving home from work, in the lift etc. And then, of course, there are the regular body corporate meetings which create a strong sense of community as residents work together for the good of the block or development.
