Multifamily Amenities Survey 2021: Get the latest data on 131 key features for apartments and condos

Study also evaluates Covid-19 impact on amenities and multifamily developers' adoption of smart connectivity systems.


The exclusive 2021 Multifamily Amenities Study describes which of 131 amenities more than 300 developers, architects, and contractors implemented in the last two years.

The new edition of MULTIFAMILY Design+Construction's "Amenities Survey" provides the latest data on 131 goodies that developers, architects, and contractors have been specifying for their multifamily projects.

The 2021 survey, which builds on data from previous studies in 2017 and 2019, also asked respondents how they were coping with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Covid impact 2020-21.png
Many respondents took a variety of actions to deal with the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on their multifamily properties.


A new question asked respondents about smart "connectivity" systems. Many said this responsibility was an "after-market" extra controlled by the owner or developer:

Xfinity Communities was the leader in smart connectivity. More than a third said they did not install smart connectivity systems. That was something the owner did.



ProCONNECT is a series of events that bring Developers, Architects, and Contractors together with Building Product Manufacturers for one-on-one discussions about Attendees' upcoming projects and potential solutions from the Manufacturers.

This fall, four ProCONNECTs will be presented – two of them (ProCONNECT Single-Family and ProCONNECT Multifamily) "live" at exclusive venues. 

Two new ProCONNECTs will debut this fall: ProCONNECT Sustainaibility | Wellness | Resilience and ProCONNECT Education (PreK-12 to University).
