According to a new annual study of high-end amenities by luxury real estate listing site Mansion Global, “'well-being' is the mantra in amenities right now."
David Bistricer, founder of Brooklyn real estate developer Clipper Equity, told Mansion Global, "People are very much focused on, as they have been, gym-related things — things that are good for the body," but consumers' view of wellness is becoming more holistic. "What we're seeing now is the mind — mental health — and taking time off from all the different things that are capturing our attention and competing." Business Insider reports that the trend is in keeping with elite consumers' movement toward "discreet wealth," "inconspicuous consumption," and "[eschewing] symbols of materialism."
Consider boutique Los Angeles condominium 1030 Kings, which has an outdoor yoga deck, and One Manhattan Square, which is set to open in early 2019 and will boast one of Manhattan's biggest private parks. Similarly, 2000 Ocean in Hallandale Beach, Florida, offers a tranquility garden with lemon trees, and Arbor18 in Brooklyn boasts not only a zen garden but also an infrared sauna with built-in chromotherapy.
