Event Details

SPIRE members and guests were wowed by 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 suites and conventional). 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.

Teams at both Simon Baron Development and Ollie shared how the concept was developed, how Ollie operates and the current status of the project. The group toured the amenity floor - including the spectacular rooftop deck, the co-working floor, an Ollie unit and a conventional unit. 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 concluded with dinner and drinks at the Oro Restaurant.

This event was open to all SPIRE members.
