Event Details

Join SPIRE for a tour of one of Ollie's newest developments, Alta in Long Island City - the largest purpose-built, ground-up, all-inclusive co-living community in North America. 

Alta by Ollie is a 125K SF, 43-story residential tower with more than 470 apartments (a mix of micro and conventional), retail and parking. 14 of the 42 floors will be dedicated to multifamily spaces designed to encourage residents to interact with their neighbors with emphasis placed on common spaces, rather than individual apartments. Bring on the concept of co-living

Composed of two- and three-bedroom shared suites with approximately 420 beds, Ollie residents will have access to the building's 20K SF of amenity space, which will include an indoor pool, a gym and a rooftop terrace with views of the Manhattan skyline. Each Ollie resident gets a soundproof, pre-furnished bedroom, free WiFi, weekly towel service and other perks normally reserved for hotel guests, plus events designed around the co-living company's theme of community.  

The other floors will include traditional rentals - though Ollie representatives have shared that these floors will have the option to participate in the benefits the Ollie clients receive as a way to foster inclusion and further market the concept. 

On June 5th, SPIRE members will get to hear directly from the teams at both Simon Baron Development and Ollie on how the concept was developed, how Ollie operates and the current status of the project. The group will get to see the amenity floor, the co-working floor, an Ollie unit, a conventional unit, and will peek at the progress on the retail space. The Alta project is under construction with developers Simon Baron Development and Quadrum Global. Ollie will design, lease, market and manage the spaces.  

The evening will continue with dinner and drinks at a nearby restaurant. 

This event is open to all SPIRE members.
