First homes to offer “Ask Alexa” smart technology
BARNETT Developments has sold more than £5.55million worth of properties on the release of the second phase of Portland 88 apartment development on Belfast’s Ormeau Road.
Featuring 88 ‘smart’ turnkey apartments over seven storeys, there is a choice of one, two and three bedroom apartments in the £ 17 million scheme.
Thought to be a first- of-itskind on the island of Ireland, each apartment will have the option of a cutting- edge smart home intelligence system allowing you to control heating, lighting and other appliances from your smart phone.
Each property comes wil an Amazon Echo “Alexa” personal assistant.
As well as high- spec luxury fittings, there will be 51 on- site car parking spaces and 20 communal berths for cyclists.
Barnett Developments CEO, Nick Barnett, said: “Belfast is on the cusp of a returning confidence and demand for city centre living like many of our UK and European neighbours.
“Portland 88 offers the next generation of living with our ‘smart’ home intelligence system and prime location.
“As property developers, we recognise that in order for cities to thrive, they need people living in the heart of them which is why we chose this prime site opposite the Gas Works in the City – within walking distance to all districts as well as being close to motorways and airports.”
An open evening tonight from 5pm until 7pm at Colliers New Homes in Talbot Street will give people the chance to tour the apartments using a virtual reality headset.
