ULI Washington- From Alexa to WhyHotel: The New Ways of Living in the Multifamily Market
An increasingly competitive apartment landscape has caused multifamily owners and operators alike to explore new ways of attracting and retaining residents. It’s also created the opportunity for alternative uses to temporarily pop-up inside permanent buildings. Enter WhyHotel, IOTAS, and Starry. WhyHotel is a company that’s answering the question of how to better utilize vacant apartments in brand new buildings until stabilized occupancy is reached, while IOTAS is a smart home platform that’s simultaneously enhancing the resident experience and providing management with invaluable insights. Equally as complementary is Starry, a company that’s working to bring high-speed internet to your residents for one flat rate without the complicated plans and poor customer service.
Join ULI Washington and Equity Residential at 100K Apartments for a tour of WhyHotel’s first pop-up hotel in the District. Attendees will also have the chance to see a live demonstration of IOTAS’ smart home technology platform, learn how Starry is disrupting the internet industry, and hear from various stakeholders on the increasingly blurred line between multifamily and hospitality.
