Townhome communities are redefining urban living with bold and unique amenities
Godden | Sudik Architects - October 12, 2020
Urban living is becoming more desirable and more attractive. Townhome communities are looking to redefine the urban living experience with brand new unique amenities.

New townhome communities are popping up everywhere because people are wanting to downsize, or enjoy the idea of low outdoor maintenance, or the idea of having many neighbors to socialize with. Within all these townhome neighborhoods, the typical pool, walking trails or playgrounds are still exciting amenities, but the demand for more unique amenities has been steadily increasing. Shared amenities such as dog parks, movie theaters and outdoor kitchens are all becoming more common.

But what other exciting amenities can we look into, that intrigue the buyers and satisfy the demand for more unique features within townhome developments?

Outdoor exercise equipment

With typically about 300 days of sunshine a year in Colorado, why not take your workout outdoors with fixed outdoor workout equipment.

Colorado has amazing views and a beautiful night sky, putting in a few free public viewing telescopes is a great way to take in all the beauty.

Community garden

Vibrant community garden

In a lot of townhome communities, the owners do not have a private area to grow a garden. A community garden is a great way to share your passion of gardening with your neighbors.

Putting green or Mini-Golf
