An ‘apartment’ or ‘flat’ is a dwelling that does not sit on its own parcel of land but is a part of a bigger building and typically has other dwelling above and/or below it. The word apartment basically originated from the American English from the late nineteenth century; however, the Americans were not quite
comfortable at accepting this style of multi-unit, horizontal living. In Europe, the Industrial Revolution in the nineteenth century was the result of the rapidly growing popularity of the multi-family buildings, by offering convenient, fashionable and affordable housing. This was particularly more common in Paris and Vienna.
In today’s world the popularity of apartments is rapidly increasing with the growth of new and lavish ‘types’ of apartments. The most commonly used luxury apartments today are ‘The penthouse apartments’, these are usually situated at a building’s top floor. They are known as expensive apartments because of the additional amenities like roof top decks and balconies. Then there are ‘The serviced apartments’, these apartments too have a great sale rate. They are well-furnished and are fitted with almost all the facilities needed by the tenant/guest. Usually serviced apartments are used for short-term stays but they may also be used for prolonged stays. These apartments have more space and are convenient for families.
Moreover, luxury apartments also include ‘High rise apartments’, such apartments are more common in metropolitan cities and are mostly used for residential or commercial purposes. They have elevators attached to them, which service all floors of the building. They are also commonly known as multiple dwelling units. Perhaps, above all the luxury apartments are the ‘Lofts’; Lofts may have a larger space compared to other apartments, with really high ceilings and windows. A loft can present anything from a studio to three bedrooms. Lofts are comparatively more expensive because of their extraordinary interior and exterior architecture, which makes them affordable by a limited class only.
Luxury apartments are available all around the globe. Similarly Tampa, city in Florida, is popular for its highly luxurious apartments. Tampa Apartments range from an average cost to the highly expensive luxurious apartments at the Tampa bay. Tampa is the third most populous city of Florida and it gets its top most billing from the Tampa bay.

Apart from Tampa Apartments, apartments in other major cities of the world like New York, London, and Tokyo e.t.c. are also quite known for their unique architecture. In today’s fast paced world the fashion of living in luxurious apartments is at its peaks. People today prefer living in High-rise apartments and lofts with glass wall and high windows which give them a beautiful view of the city lights at night.
