It is no secret that rental prices are on the rise all around Charlotte, as rent is approximately 7% higher than it was just a year ago. Numerous new construction projects that are in the works are trying to fill the inventory void, which is good news for those who are looking to rent. Furthermore, all of these new apartment communities have really stepped up their game in terms of high end, luxury and sometimes outrageous amenities in order to compete for market share.
Pools, fitness centers, and sundecks are fairly standard amenities. But now, instead of just a basic workout room, you can find full gyms that include yoga, Pilates and cross training, like at the SkyHouse luxury high-rise in Uptown. Or, check out the barre, yoga, and spin room or outdoor yoga terrace and Fitness on Demand at Berkshire Dilworth. Solis Southline boasts a rock climbing wall, and the junior Olympic pool at The Vue and the heated saltwater rooftop pool at Ascent in Uptown are anything but standard.
At Encore South Park, you will find massage, sauna and steam rooms, as well as an on-site concierge, plus there is an Alexa in every unit. For dog lovers, The Mint features a special pet elevator with access to the dog park, and SkyHouse features its own dog park, as well, along with a putting green, tennis and bocce ball courts and a huge activity field.
Desirable amenities are all over town and include such perks as an event stylist, like at 5115 Park Place. Legacy 521 features an indoor basketball court, while Horizons at Steele Creek features its own movie theater. Other amenities at buildings across the city include poolside drink service, a rooftop garden and cocktail terrace, valet dry cleaning and laundry, a virtual gaming lounge, a wine display and tasting area, a penthouse lounge with an observation deck and fire pits, and so much more.
When shopping for an apartment in Charlotte, perhaps renters will not choose based on the unit itself but by the perks the building that they’re renting from has to offer.
