“Branded residential sits at the most competitive and innovative edge of real estate development, with the sector growing exponentially over the past 10 years as buyers look for a one-of-a-kind product, with enhanced services and amenities, and with a brand name that they trust. We are meeting all of these needs at Four Seasons, along with being the ongoing property managers, caring for not only our residents but their most important asset – their home. "With hospitality at our core, expansion into branded residences was the natural next step for Four Seasons. In 1985, we opened our first Private Residences, in Boston, and today we have 44 residential projects open, operating across 19 countries, all of which provide our residents with the highest level of services and amenities in some of the best locations in the world. Based on the incredible success of our Private Residences, we expect to double this portfolio, with more than 90% of our development projects including a residential component. And most importantly, we continue to innovate along the way, adding new technological developments, such as a new residential digital experience this past year, as well as enhanced designs, services and amenities.”
