Art Amenities Offer Limitless Creativity

In luxury apartment buildings and community residences, amenities are everything. Without a vast array of opportunities for residents to live in the ultimate luxury, the quality drops. With this in mind, developments have been finding new and creative ways to elevate the standard of luxury living when it comes to amenities — and it’s through art itself.

Luxury residential buildings are fostering creativity for their child residents. Through different art-focused programs and amenities, the opportunities for children to explore their imagination are now limitless.

The luxury Manhattan condo 277 Fifth Avenue, in partnership with the global luxury service brand LIVunLtd, is providing opportunities for children to participate in music classes, dance classes, arts and crafts. The playful atmosphere in the rooms inspires children to have fun and get creative. 

Meanwhile, at the Brickell City Centre in Miami, the Reach and Rise luxury condominiums have installed amenities for children with an artistic twist. While some walls have screens for interactive games, others are blank and allow for children to write and draw. The colorful furniture allows for creativity to flourish.

But these amenities aren’t always exclusive to children — at 1000M in Chicago, the residents will have access to both a music conservatory and a sound studio. The soundproof room is perfect for anyone looking to advance their skills or begin learning a new instrument. Either way, both children and adults can now feel artistic and inspired.

A fantastic escape from a long day at work, Bell Olmsted Park is located across the street from Olmsted Park, a gorgeous public park with a beautiful serene pond — definitely a favorite for locals.

The 43-story community, located in the heart of San Francisco’s SoMa district, has unveiled the property’s $25 million re-imagination.

Related Companies, a U.S. real estate firm, will rejuvenate the lobby, common spaces and residences, as well as bring a new amenity collection to the community.
“The significant property-wide re-imagination further elevates The Paramount‘s status as one of the most coveted San Francisco high-rises and was designed to enhance our creative, professional, and entrepreneurial residents’ lifestyles,” said Bill Witte, chairman of Related California. “We are very excited to offer a new way of elevated living for our residents here at The Paramount and at our future residential developments in San Francisco…”
Designed by Marmol Radziner, a West Coast-based design-build firm, The Paramount’s new look is elegant and contemporary. Using natural elements, such as polished marble and wood textures, the design creates a warm space for residents and guests. To reflect San Francisco’s artist culture, The Paramount also features artwork from renowned artists, such as Eva Schlegel and Val Britton.

Styled by local interior designer Sayre Ziskin, The Paramount’s model unit features an array of neutral colors, complimented by bold patterns and textures throughout the space. The furniture and fixtures reflect a contemporary aesthetic while still retaining warmth and coziness.
In addition to the new design elements, the property has unveiled new resident amenities, including a fitness center, heated outdoor swimming pool, landscaped rooftop terrace and an expansive rooftop dog run.
“Inspired by the buzz and energy of San Francisco, The Paramount was designed to reflect and cater to the lifestyle and personality of our San Francisco residents, making it the perfect place to call home and connect with family, friends, and colleagues,” said David Greenberg, vice president of Related Management Company. “The Paramount provides residents with the utmost luxury and unparalleled, five-star service, and we look forward to reintroducing the property to the San Francisco market.”

Atelier of downtown Los Angeles

Rising 33 stories, Atelier is one of Downtown Los Angeles’ newest premium residential buildings, bringing 363 artfully appointed residences panoramic views of the swelling city skyline from the center of it all.
“Primarily, the most distinguishing feature of Atelier is location,” says Dan Garibaldi, managing partner of development and construction at Carmel Partners. “LA’s gone through a transformation in the last 15 years, which has really accelerated in the last five. When we bought the property there was not a lot of activity occurring downtown, but now there are numerous new restaurants, bars, entertainment areas and job centers moving into the area.”
Just a short distance from cultural hubs such as the Staples Center, L.A. Live and Walt Disney Concert Hall, Atelier residents can integrate a vast array of entertainment into their lives. “With Atelier, you can live near where you work and play. If you were to pick a center of Downtown LA, I believe 8th and Olive, our location, is the epicenter.”
Atelier’s design encompasses the emblematic LA lifestyle, particularly through its transitional indoor/outdoor amenity spaces. “We embrace the exterior spaces, we embrace healthy living,” says Garibaldi. Alongside a slew of resort-style amenities, Atelier boasts numerous terraces — a Yoga Terrace, Game & BBQ Terrace, Private Dining Terrace, as well as a pool deck. Yet its most impressive outdoor space is the rooftop Skyline Terrace, featuring a splash pool, cabana, fire pit, not to mention uninterrupted city views.
Atelier began pre-leasing in December 2016.
