If you are wondering what new things Miami has been up to lately, we have good news. The record-breaking YotelPad will bring the future to this city; robots will be taking over this Downtown Miami residence in the form of room service and it will be super-efficient and futuristic.
This cosmopolitan sanctuary features 231 residential units and 222 hotel rooms with state-of-the-art fitness center, an organic matcha bar, elevated deck with pool, Skytop lounge featuring game area and chef's kitchen, full-service restaurant and bar, and other amenities for the Miami elite.
The 31-story building will be one of the first in the Miami area to offer a robot concierge service. Other businesses are joining this 21st-century trend like Sedano's Supermarket, which launched the first robotic supermarket in Miami this year.
This futuristic building has already sold out its residences in Downtown Miami with high-tech amenities and automated smart beds.
So next time you order from Starbucks, you might see a robot named Wally bringing your drink straight to your door. According to CoStar, Japan was the first to open the world's first robot-run hotel in 2015. Now, other cities are following the trend such as Singapore, Boston, New York City and Atlanta.
The Miami property which is scheduled to open in 2021 will have three robots delivering food, packages and other items to your door. The high-end real estate industry is noticing the increased demand of services in the Miami area and this trend will soon be adopted by other hotels.
YotelPad will also have other technical features such as digital package delivery hubs, transit screens with real-time updates on Metromover and ride-share services, and self-check-in kiosks.
According to Next Miami, most of the buyers came from Mexico, China and Colombia where owners can do short-term rentals through the leaseback program.
So, if you are looking to move to Miami for few months, this will be the most tech and modern stay of your life.
