Jasper Is San Francisco’s Latest High-End Robot-Powered Building

Tech-savvy consumers have a new luxury residence they can live in if they are located in San Francisco, thanks to the city’s newest skyscraper dubbed Jasper.

According to a report by Forbes, the new luxury residence has lots of high-end touches, from scotch tastings to touch screens. It even boasts an on-demand service by Savioke Relay robots. The robots will deliver toothpaste, champagne and dessert, among other things, to residents who use the building’s app to order off the menu. After the items are placed in the secure storage bin, the bot will deliver them to the apartment.

The 40-story high-rise apartment building is also close to the offices of Dropbox, Lyft, Facebook and Google, making it appealing to tech workers in San Francisco. It even offers buses to cart them off to Silicon Valley for work. It boasts high ceilings, outdoor common areas, a gym and even overnight visitor facilities. It also promises a level of service that is personalized and can rival what the wealthy are used to.

The residence is being operated by Crescent Heights, a developer group known for operating properties that have a lot of amenities. They are trying to lure the tech wealthy in San Francisco by also offering entertainment, such as sports nights, as well as all the amenities.

“For games on Sundays, we can have a big-screen TV, and it also becomes a place where people can watch an NCAA college basketball game and have eight screens going at the same time,” said Roman Speron, vice president at Crescent Heights, in a CNBC report covered by Forbes. Jasper’s brochure about the residence puts it like this: “From the concierge to the valet, Jasper’s detail-obsessed staff is there to address you by name and treat you like a god.”
