Real Estate Weekly: The Biggest Amenities of 2019

The smart home, long a staple of science fiction, is finally here, as Real Estate Weekly declared in its roundup of the biggest residential amenities going into 2019. While we’re still not able to “replicate” our food, an integrated Amazon Echo will update residents of the East Village’s Greatest Building on everything from the status of their laundry to the arrival of a package. And, if an internet-enabled East Village luxury rental isn’t enough of a selling point, residents at EVGB will also have access to a suite of classic amenities that includes an indoor saltwater pool, a residents’ lounge, and an expansive roof deck complete with old school favorites, including fire pits and a bocce ball court.
