According to the latest research by CRBE, wellness needs to be on the agenda for developers when designing new buildings. Tenants are more conscious of wellbeing than ever before and now it’s more than just wanting to live in developments that simply have gyms and swimming pools. Many new developments already have these so they’re not really seen as luxuries anymore. Instead, in order to gain an edge over other developers, CBRE are suggesting that wellness, in a far wider sense, should be looked at.
The seven dimensions of wellness, as devised by Dr Bill Hettler, co-founder of the National Wellness Institute, have formed a part of CRBE’s research. This incorporated looking at developments and how they account for the intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, occupational, physical and environmental needs of their tenants.
“People are more conscious of wellbeing far more than ever before and not just on a physical level. We want to live both physically and mentally in the best possible way. Our homes should be a sanctuary of calm, but also an invigorating and stimulating environment, away from the fast-paced, stressful surroundings of our workplaces,” said Lisa Hollands, Managing Director of Residential at CBRE.
