The future is here, today at the 505. Residents enjoy amenities wrapped seamlessly into one app which provides access to building entry control, unit locks, thermostats, and a voice-controlled system that features the Amazon Echo Dot. IOT technology also connects students to community areas and amenities, such as collaborative study rooms with Google Jam boards and smart projectors.


In addition to indoor amenities, two large open courtyards were thoughtfully curated into the design to provide designated outdoor gathering and gaming spaces for people and their four-legged friends.
