Building social connections are vital to our everyday experiences. And now more than ever, we need spaces that can enrich the urban living experience.
While city living has plenty of perks to offer, from vibrant restaurant scenes to cultural events, Metro Vancouver rentals and condos often lack that same vibrancy in the buildings themselves. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Thoughtful retail amenities and shared spaces can create a more connected residential community.
According to our Homes Not For Sale survey, the most frequented businesses for respondents are coffee shops and grocery stores. Now, imagine if your most-visited retailers were just a hop away and felt integrated into the programming of your building? And about shared spaces – wouldn’t you want to have the option to step into a co-working space in your building?
In this Thinking piece, we look at how retail can seamlessly feel part of conventional living areas and how shared spaces can bring more connection to a resident’s daily life.
