What It’s About:
When it comes to community amenities, what can stay the same, and what must change? These are the questions housing professionals are asking as we learn to live with COVID and begin to look toward the future. One thing is certain: During this last year, people have spent a lot of time (many would say too much time) inside and have a new appreciation for the outdoors, large gatherings and seeing friends and neighbors without physical distance between. In this session, hear from two companies who are successfully designing and building thriving single- and multifamily amenities, and learn how to apply their successes to your projects.

What You’ll Learn:
– Learn how to build flexibility into amenity spaces so projects can respond to weather, health concerns or other unexpected challenges.
– Discuss health and wellness strategies and considerations in shared amenities.
– Examine the design details of new single- and multifamily amenities.
