Ten Thousand, the country’s most technologically advanced building, is now leasing its units, with rental prices starting at $9,000 per month. Located on the edge of Beverly Hills and Century City, the 40-story tower has the distinction of being the first residential building to feature “CHARLEY,” a Relay delivery robot designed and built by Savioke. Featuring a host of futuristic amenities, Ten Thousand will further establish developer Crescent Heights as a leader in high-rise technology.

CHARLEY will undoubtedly delight residents with its ability to deliver packages, meals, beverages, birthday cakes, and flowers right to their doors. The robot has been programmed to navigate the entire building and to operate elevators independently. Upon moving in, each resident is given an iPad mini 4s, which are outfitted with the Ten Thousand App, designed by San Francisco-based company, Riseio, and contain a menu of items that CHARLEY can deliver. Once the residents place their orders via the app, a team of butlers receive the requests and place the items inside CHARLEY’s secure interior compartment for delivery.

In addition to providing streamlined one-touch access to CHARLEY’s services, Riseio’s app also integrates an innovative beacon technology system throughout the building, utilizing location-based services in conjunction with Crescent Heights signature Predictive Service to ensure that the staff has a thorough understanding of the residents’ particular preferences and needs. The app-based valet system also allows residents to arrange for personal training sessions, complimentary fitness classes, order drinks from the bar, reserve the private dining room for a dinner party, submit service requests, request their vehicle, pay rent, and be notified of deliveries. In-home temperature and lighting are also managed directly from the tenants’ iPads.

Through a partnership with Bel Air Internet (BAI), residents at Ten Thousand are given access to an individual, private Wi-Fi network with complimentary Gigabit high speed internet (the fastest available internet access on the market). Available throughout the entire property, this feature will allow residents to seamlessly enter their own protected Wi-Fi network throughout the building, from their homes, to the pool, to the fitness center.

Other high-tech features include Ecobee3 smart Wi-Fi thermostats with hands-free control and Schindler PORT Technology elevators that offer expedited, controlled access to individual floors, saving residents an average of 20 hours a year in time spent waiting for elevators and traveling to unintended destinations.

Balancing the emphasis on technology, Ten Thousand also boasts a wide array of indoor and outdoor amenities encouraging wellness, leisure, culture, and entertainment. Leaving nothing to be desired, there is a beautiful one-acre park designed by Meléndrez; both an indoor lap pool and an outdoor sunning pool; indoor and outdoor movie theaters; a resident lounge with a full-service bar and a private dining club inspired by the legendary Jimmy’s restaurant; an outdoor chef’s kitchen; a 20,000-square-foot Jay Wright-designed fitness program that includes a fitness center, private training rooms and a Pilates room; a massage and spa treatment room; fully equipped boardrooms; a lighted tennis court with private instruction; and a Kids’ Studio designed by the Novogratz family, inspired by the California work space of Charles and Ray Eames.
