Games, games, games! Half of respondents to a recent survey of multifamily developers, designers, and builders were providing gaming settings, with a falloff in more active spaces such as sports courts or jogging paths (in a virtual tie at about 27%). 
The number providing space for physical therapy (18.7%) was somewhat surprising; perhaps PT is thought of as a health and wellness benefit.

“Other” recreation amenities: tennis court (10.3%), climbing or bouldering wall (7.1%), and racquetball or squash court (3.9%). 

More results from the survey to come next week.

Recreation amenities in multifamily developments:
Game Room, Arcade, or Simulator: 51.6%
Gym, Basketball or Volleyball Court: 27.4%
Jogging Path: 27.1%
Spin Studio: 20.0%
Physical Therapy Room: 18.7%
Base: 155
