Perks of Concierge Living

Imagine having someone to be that extra helping hand when you need it. Now more and more places are offering new and elevated services designed to make your life easier from the moment you walk through the door. Below we explore the perks of having comprehensive concierge care in your community:

    1. Package Security & Delivery
      With the convenience and time-saving benefits of online shopping, people are receiving more packages than ever. Unfortunately, having the delivery man leave it on a doorstep leaves your goods vulnerable to theft. Concierge services in a building add an extra layer of security so you don’t have to think twice about where to get that Amazon package shipped. It will also stop the frustrating back and forth “sorry we missed you” sticky notes from the mail-carrier. The Swift Petworth now has the Luxer One system. Once a package is logged in residents receive an email with a code as well as a barcode. Then, residents can come down at their earliest convenience and pick up their package!  
    2. Less Time Spent on Tasks
      From walking the dog to getting theater tickets, a full-service daily concierge has the ability to be more of a personal assistant than your average doorman. Residents at 2401 Pennsylvania Avenue enjoy a full suite of services at their fingertips. Restaurant reservations, interior designers, pet-feeding, groceries, dry-cleaning, and scheduling appointments are just some of the perks this Washington DC West End community provides. And what do all these benefits bring? More time to spend on the fun things in life. 
    3. Luxurious Lifestyle
      Concierge services are the ultimate way to “treat yourself.” With the increased emphasis on self-care now, there is the realization that we need to make more time for ourselves instead of letting the hustle and bustle of life sweep us away. The extra hand or friendly face when you walk into the building is a valuable part of having a higher quality of life. Residents at 4000 Massachusetts Avenue in the Cathedral Heights neighborhood of Washington DC have 24-hour front desk concierge service and entrance doorman service. The perfect assistant for life’s comings and goings.

5 Ways to Enjoy Your Apartment’s Amenity Spaces

The best apartment amenities simply make life better. Apartment living has many benefits and the use of beautiful shared spaces is one of the most valuable for creating the dynamic modern lifestyle many of us crave. Below we explore a couple of ways to use your community amenities:

  1. Work From Home
    Whether you are studying for your Masters or have the option to work remotely at your job— you’ll probably want to leave your home to limit distractions and concentrate. Instead of hunting down the perfect place in a crowded coffee shop or library, an apartment with an on-site lounge/office area is the ideal place to get stuff done. Aura Pentagon City has an incredible business center with Wi-Fi and Mac Work stations. No printer? Residents at Highland House Community enjoy free faxing and copying services.
  2. Gather for an Event
    Attractive communal gathering spaces are a great perk that apartment residents get to use. If you have an event you want to celebrate with loved ones, save yourself the trouble of getting your home in tip-top shape for guests when you host it in a community room! The Swift Petworth has an amazing lounge area with big screen TV’s that are excellent for hosting a gathering— from a sporting event watch party to a book club meet up (just make sure to reserve with the management office in advance).
  3. Barbeque with Friends
    Bond over burgers and vegetable kabobs at on-site grill areas. The perfect spot to gather and socialize when the weather is warm. 2401 Pennsylvania Avenue has a rooftop terrace with lounge seating, grills, and beautiful views of the Washington, DC skyline. Any gathering there is sure
    to be memorable!

  4. Use the Dog Park
    Have a furry best friend? Break up the routine of a regular walk and give your dog a safe space to exercise and roam around freely at a dog park. It gives your dog a chance to socialize with other dogs and is a great way to meet people in your community who also love dogs. Country Place Apartments has a Bark Park that will make both you and your pet very happy!
  5. Take a Dip
    When summer rolls around the pool is the prime spot to socialize and cool off. Rollins Congressional Club is a free amenity for our Rollins Park and Congressional Towers residents. The pool has lots of features people love in the summertime like a Lazy River and lap pool. Host a summer birthday party when you book the clubhouse!
