Tenant-Friendly Apartment Construction

Tenant-Friendly Apartment Construction
Apartment construction projects need to keep in mind the needs of the renters. Here are some big considerations.

Keeping some strategic considerations in mind for an apartment construction project can make the property stand out from others in the area and make it a more appealing rental option to tenants. The following are a couple things that may be helpful to keep in mind for your apartment construction project.  

Location

Developing a multi-dwelling building in an attractive neighborhood will only make your apartment more appealing to renters. If the apartment complex is near workplaces, grocery stores, entertainment, public transportation, etc., this may be seen as a great benefit to renters and entice them to reside at your location.

Parking

Whether it’s a garage, a lot, or some other parking structure, make sure your tenants will have a nice and safe place to park their vehicles. Allot an appropriate amount of spaces per tenant and include extra spaces for visitor parking. Moreover, parking areas should be well-lit and accessible.

Move-In Ready

Take time to think about the right amount of interior work to do during the apartment construction in order to get each unit move-in ready for tenants. Tenants will finish their space with curtains, customized floors, etc. Therefore, think about what else could be done to possibly provide more appeal to renters. For instance, updating to new kitchen appliances or light fixtures may make the unit more desirable to renters.

Space and Storage

If an apartment happens to be of a smaller size, it can be made to feel larger by utilizing an open floor plan. This may require scrapping some unnecessary walls or not including a kitchen island.  Suitable storage space will also be beneficial. Closets and cabinets keep clutter out of sight, making the space feel more open. In addition, natural light can help give the illusion of a bigger space, so think of how to best utilize windows. On higher floors, windows can also offer a delightful view of the surrounding neighborhood.
