Building porters are the in-house delivery men of the 1 percent. And they might soon become a thing of the past.
Ten Thousand, a forthcoming 283-unit Los Angeles rental tower, won’t use human power to bring sundries — like parcels or food — to residents’ doorsteps. Instead, tenants of the building will have these items brought by a robot, The Post has learned.
Relay, a delivery robot built by California-based robotics company Savioke, will make its way through the entire 40-story building to bring inhabitants whatever they need. It’s even able to operate elevators on its own.
This makes Ten Thousand, which stands on the cusp between Beverly Hills and Century City, among the very first residential developments to deploy robot servants. The building anticipates a January 2017 opening and has prices from $9,000 per month.
Here’s how it works: Residents use the building’s app — available on the iPad Minis that come included in each dwelling — to order from a menu of items, which also includes drinks and flowers. Their requests are received by a team of butlers, who then put the goods inside the robot’s interior compartment for transport.
Items are loaded into the robot’s internal storage compartment, then delivered to tenants’ doorsteps.
It’s not the only futuristic amenity to be included in this development. Ten Thousand also has predictive technology. For example, syncing up with tenants’ phones and tablets will let building staffers know when to make morning cups of coffee before they jet off to work for the day.
There are cosmetic amenities, too — literally. The building will house a wellness studio, where on-call doctors can deliver Botox injections.
Ten Thousand, aptly, is located at 10000 Santa Monica Blvd.
