What do you think of when you hear the term “old fashioned style”? Is it the way the building is designed or the way the staff is commited to providing service? We can break this down into two sections to expalin the difference.
We have discovered there are about 5 new luxury residential buildings near the George Washington Bridge in Bergen County. These new buildings, like The Modern, all have state-of-the-art technology, appliances and amenities. Hi-rise buildings made of glass and steel that scream modern and luxurious. What makes them old fashioned is the staffs commitment to providing top-notch service. In today’s society, it is not as common as it used to be to provide great customer service. I think people forget to take pride in doing a good job, and doing it to the best of their ability. And at The Modern, it all starts in the two-story lobby at the desk of the 24/7 concierge.
Down in Englewood South is where you will find a new luxury apartment complex that has an old fashioned design. The Brownstones at Englewood South was inspired by the historic neighborhoods of New York. The two-toned brick building has a townhouse style front stoop as you enter the front door. The old-fashioned street lights add to the feeling of nostalgia you get as you walk down the streets. While the extrerior of the complex has the old fashioned look, the interior meets all of the standards of a modern luxury building. The apartments feature stainless steel appliances, full size washer and dryers, dark wood laminate floors, recessed and/or track lighting, and built in surround sound speaker systems. The common areas include a rec. room with large screen TV’s, a well equipped fitness center, outdoor heated pool, WiFi throughout, and a courtyard with bbq grills, fire pits and a dining patio.
Try not to associate the term “old fashioned” with something old and broken down. Try to think of it as a time in history when people took pride in their work.
