What It's About:
Full on community facilities with pools, locker rooms, kitchens and large gathering rooms are becoming a thing of the past. They are often too expensive to build and too costly to maintain for many neighborhoods. But buyers still desire a sense of community and “right-sized” gathering places. From infill to neighborhood to community, it’s important to invest in the appropriate indoor and outdoor spaces and amenities that bring value to your buyers and set your project apart. This presentation will share creative ideas from across the country for right-sized amenities with broad market appeal and a lot of bang for the buck. You will see examples of smaller community facilities with flexibility of use, and how communities are meeting buyer demand for more trails and open spaces enhanced with smaller gathering areas along the way. You will learn how to design spaces and amenities to fit your buyers’ lifestyle needs and contribute to your community brand image and marketing plan.
