One Franklin in San Francisco to Integrate Hello Alfred Service for its Residents

One Franklin Street becomes the first building to fully integrate Hello Alfred’s Building Amenity Platform as they bring the future of living to San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO, CA September 12, 2016 Today, One Franklin Street opened its doors to residents, and becomes the first building to offer a new standard of living through its full integration of Hello Alfred.

“Hello Alfred is the future of city living and the ultimate amenity,” says Marcela Sapone, CEO & Co-Founder of Hello Alfred , “we are excited to launch our first full building integration in San Francisco. Residents at One Franklin Street will have a home that anticipates them.”

Hello Alfred elevates residential living by connecting powerful technology with in-home service. With Hello Alfred, property owners not only have a turn-key upgrade to a stale concierge amenity, but a smart platform to operate their building and learn more about their residents.

Currently, Hello Alfred services are offered in several buildings in New York and Boston, including the first of its kind micro-units at Carmel Place (a development focused on living experience and not square footage operated by Ollie Living). However, what One Franklin Street (located in the Hayes Valley area of San Francisco) represents, is not just Hello Alfred’s West Coast launch, but the first time a building has been developed and constructed with the Hello Alfred Platform built into it.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be paving the way for the new standard in urban property management and development,” explains Sean Sullivan, Managing Principal of JS Sullivan (One Franklin Street’s developer), “Hello Alfred is helping us differentiate our property by offering a truly unique service and experience to our homeowners.”

Residents are given the luxury of real help with recurring needs like groceries, dry cleaning, home cleaning and other day-to-day headaches on a weekly basis. It is the first service that enables someone to run their home from their phone and is the future of service consumption, particularly among the millennial generation. In addition to this the service tracks data on residents behavior that offers developers useful insights for future property management decisions.

“Hello Alfred is the ideal partner to complement the curated amenities and services available at One Franklin, and Polaris Pacific is excited to help introduce this innovative lifestyle brand to the West Coast,” says Josh Nasvik, Project Director for Polaris Pacific, “JS Sullivan shares our understanding that today’s homeowner values timesaving amenities that enrich their lives. By launching Hello Alfred’s Home Operating System in San Francisco, we’re helping to reshape what the market thinks of in terms of a full-service lifestyle.”

Hello Alfred’s unique platform has completed over half a million requests since launching in 2014 and has $13M in venture funding. It is currently available in Boston, New York and San Francisco with plans to expand to Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Chicago in the near future.

With this milestone and several other large property partnerships to be announced across the country Hello Alfred looks set to continue its exponential growth for the foreseeable future.
