These Six Luxury Apartment Rentals Will Lure You With Crazy Perks

Light-therapy showers in the fitness center, a salon for pets, and onsite bike repair are some of the amenities on tap.

Developers began building a slew of luxury rental buildings during the real-estate slump, and many are hitting the market this year. Here’s a cheat sheet to six shiny new downtown towers (total number of apartments: 2,695) and some of the unusual amenities they’re offering to stand out from the pack.
