In celebration of summer’s arrival, Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is spotlighting new development properties in Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York; Miami and West Palm Beach, Florida; and Houston, Texas, with amenities that enable residents to embrace the great outdoors.
From rooftop entertaining terraces and green spaces to swimming pools, outdoor amenities have become necessities for new developments, especially those in the luxury market. According to the New York Times, outdoor space has become a must-have, and according to one architect, “buying any luxury real estate in New York without outdoor space will be considered unacceptable.”
In that regard, these properties do not disappoint.
