Other condo complexes are joining the game offering jet parking, jet partnerships like this one and personal flight directors for residents. Bloomberg Weekly attributes this extreme competition to the financial crisis and the fight for the residents.

“Once upon a time, rooftop pools, climbing walls, pet-washing stations, and golf simulation rooms were amenities that would genuinely help sell a high-end condo.  But as the luxury market expanded after the financial crisis, developers bent over backwards to up the ante, hawking screening rooms, wine cellars, bocce courts, and concierges until so many buildings had them that they seemed like one big blur of luxury add-ons.”

Today the competition wages on and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
