Both the science and the art of urban residential construction are constantly evolving and improving. “When comparing a tower built today to one constructed just ten years ago, the technological advancements and other innovations are impressive,” says OneWorld Properties President and CEO Peggy Fucci. “That’s why, when evaluating a potential real estate investment, it’s important to understand exactly what the product is that you are purchasing. Of course, most buyers are attracted to beautiful decorating and elegant finishes, but it’s important to look beyond the surface to ensure you are getting the most for your money.”
There are several industry trends that can be identified which can make a difference in how you live every day.
Every homeowner wants a floorplan that both maximizes interior space and extends the outdoor living space, while contemplating the lifestyle of the owner. However, many floorplans don’t achieve these goals. They are more about dividing up space than thoughtfully contemplating real-life applications. But some builders are shaking up the old way of doing things and finding innovative ways to make better use of space. Kolter Urban is one of them. “Kolter integrates the residential interior design into the building’s planning stages,” said Bob Martin of The Decorators Unlimited. “During preconstruction, we work directly with the architectural team to help design spaces that maximize the views, natural light and flexibility in how our homeowners live within the residence. And at this early stage, it is still easy to make changes and adjust the plans.”
Most buyers appreciate features that make their residence feel bright, airy and connected to the outdoors. Just a few years ago, these features weren’t as attainable as they are today. But in the wake of engineering breakthroughs and technological improvements, Kolter Urban is employing the latest ideas to improve their buildings. In the past, floor to ceiling windows created too much heat, requiring a great deal of energy to cool down. Today’s high-tech windows are impact, wind and heat resistant, making them safer, environmentally sound and a perfect way to maximize the magnificent view. New construction methods and materials have also allowed for popular features such as higher ceilings which allow light to penetrate deeper into the rooms and expansive balconies that provide generous outdoor space.
While Kolter’s buildings feature timely designs and styling, they aren’t built to be trendy. They are constructed with quality materials and sophisticated design to withstand the test of time. “The best new buildings aren’t the ones that surprise you with their trendy features,” said Stefano Faldo of SB Architects. “They are the ones that while modern in their technology, embody a quality of design that allows them to become landmarks.
So how does Kolter stay on the cutting edge in this ever-evolving market? Along with their in-house expertise, they partner with top design professionals from renowned companies like SB Architects and design firms that include Chicago’s Simone Dreary and Palm Beach’s The Decorator’s Unlimited. These design experts keep Kolter Urban ahead of the trends, so they are constantly moving forward.
