From unique amenities to convenient locations, living in an apartment community has many perks to potential residents from all walks of life. For many, one of the best parts of apartment living is the sense of community that comes with it. Whether it’s a small space or a designated building, the community room or clubhouse is an important place where strangers turn into friends. With our reputation of personal and convenient service, Lincoln Property Company is more than happy to help our residents create a lifestyle that they love. Here are a few ways to make sure your residents get the most out of your communal area.
Encourage A Little Friendly Competition: One of the best ways to bond with someone new is over a card game or a round of pool. Offer different options such as a variety of board games, decks of cards, or a pool table and shuffleboard like the Woodview Apartments in Deerfield, IL. According to recent studies, playing games can improve relationships and connections to others as “Developing a playful nature can help you loosen up in stressful situations, break the ice with strangers, make new friends, and form new business relationships.”
Tune In For The Big Game: Whether it’s the biggest football game of the year or a glamorous awards show, give your residents the star treatment by providing quality ways to view their favorite programs. Invest in a smart tv like The Residences at River’s Edge in Medford, MA, for residents to watch the latest movies in style.
Offer A Connection: Today, being connected is more important than ever. Offer free and easy-to-access wifi to encourage residents to work or play in the communal area. Many of our communities offer this feature, including the Heritage on the Merrimack in Bedford, NH. Whether they are working on a client presentation or streaming funny videos, providing residents with wifi gives them the option to work solo or collaborate with others in a new space.
Provide A Place To Dish It Out: As with any type of gathering, the food usually takes center stage. A small kitchen area or food preparation station is great for residents looking to entertain or host an event for their neighbors. The Mosaic Westshore in Tampa, FL offers a catering kitchen and bar in their clubroom for residents to make the most out of their time outside of the apartment.
