Technology-driven apartments

Never heard of a technology-driven apartment? Here’s how it works. The Citizen is synched with an app called Livly that allows residents to do a number of daily life activities through their phone, such as:

  • Unlock their units (no keys needed!)
  • Control the thermostat
  • Pick up packages
  • Manage services like dog walking, drying cleaning + personal training 

More innovative features include:

  • Digital Concierge
  • Designated drive-in area made for Uber, Lyft + other rideshare and delivery services
  • E-Scooter Bay
  • 2 Model 3 Teslas available for onsite rideshare
  • Smart Guest Access
  • Smart Locks

According to the BBJ, The Citizen is in discussions with Ladybird Taco—who just announced their first Alabama location at Lane Parke—to occupy space on the ground level of the building.
