It's name is CHARLEY...

In August, we heard about a new Santa Monic Boulevard luxury apartment building where tenants will have access to  butlers, dog walkers, and Botox injections , but now it seems that the extensive amenities list at the high-rise keeps growing.  Called Ten Thousand, the building will also be staffed by at least one robot, according to a press release from developer Crescent Heights. Its name is CHARLEY, and its programmers have taught the machine to navigate the halls and elevators of the 40-story tower, delivering “packages, meals, beverages, birthday cake, and flowers” to waiting residents.  The delivery robot, designed by futuristic tech company Savioke, can be summoned by iPad Minis given to each resident when they move in. The iPads can also be used to order drinks, reserve personal training sessions, and pay the building’s very hefty rent (units are now leasing and start at $9,000)

With no shortage of luxury apartments in the LA area, developers are increasingly under pressure to provide tenants with the most extravagant amenities possible. So far, Ten Thousand looks like it will be hard to beat on that front.   Ten Thousand’s 75,000 square feet of amenity space includes a one-acre park, multiple pools and movie theaters, bar and restaurant, fitness center, tennis court, and a kids’ studio “inspired by the California workspace of Charles and Ray Eames.”  Moreover, the robot delivery service is just one part of the building’s new focus on technological sophistication. Residents will also have access to an ultra-fast Wi-Fi network, hands-free thermostat control, and in-house tech support for any old computer problem.
