Introducing Technology to Apartment Living

Introducing Technology to Apartment Living

We are committed to making apartment living effortless for every person that calls one of our Neighborhoods home. With thoughtful technology* woven into our apartment design, we provide a smart home experience. Trestle Apartments in the Bay Area Peninsula region and The Carson Apartments in Northwest Portland are two of our newest collections of luxury apartment homes – and are filled with enviable technology solutions.  

Starting this summer, Neighbors at The Carson Apartments can enjoy the following Amazon benefits, in addition to the spectacular rooftop deck and highly walkable Slabtown location:

A year of Amazon Prime on us**

Enjoy fast, free delivery on over 100 million items, watch thousands of popular movies and TV shows, and more.

Smart apartments, just ask Alexa

Let Amazon experts help set up smart home devices in your new apartment; then simply use your voice to control your smart home hands-free with Alexa.

24/7 package pickup from Hub by Amazon

Hub by Amazon is your fast and easy way to receive packages from anyone. Pick it up any time; the Hub is always open.

But The Carson isn’t the only Neighborhood to get some technology love. Check out these other elements, featured at a number of our apartment home collections:


The Nest Learning Thermostat learns what temperature you like and builds a schedule around yours. Just use it for a week, set your temperature settings to what works best for you, and Nest does the rest. If you like to be extra cold at night, but prefer a warmer wakeup, Nest will adjust the temperature in your apartment accordingly. You can also control the thermostat from your phone, meaning no more having to get up from the couch for those spousal temperature disputes. 

Latch Keyless Entry 

Have you ever had your arms full of groceries – or perhaps an overeager puppy pulling towards freedom – and been thoroughly unable to locate your keys? Yeah, us too. It’s why we introduced Latch Keyless Entry to our apartment homes. Now all you need is your phone and the app. Neighbors and our Prometheans can also share access confidently and securely with trusted visitors when they are away making sure that Fido’s afternoon walk happens seamlessly. 


Don’t worry about cramming that spin class into your busy schedule. Access high-energy indoor cycling workouts instantly with our Peloton® bike. Choose from over a thousand classes and filter by your preferred music type, class length, or instructor. Track your progress with indepth metrics, and plan fitness routines to reach your goals. 

EV Charging Station 

Pull in and plug in your electric car to one of our EV Charging Stations before heading inside and enjoying a glass of wine. 


Chat on your Neighborhood message board, check in and see what events are happening, pay your rent, submit maintenance requests, and reserve an amenity for your next event – all from the comfort of your couch. 

Stay tuned to see the latest technologies rolling out in a Neighborhood near you. 

*Available at select collections of apartment homes. Contact the leasing office of your desired Neighborhood to learn more.
