Opera Tower Introduces New Free Mobile App Allowing Residents to Manage Residences from Smartphones and Tablets

MIAMI, FL –  Opera Tower residents now have the ability to manage their residences, whether home or away, via a new, free mobile application that allows them to access the luxury condominium’s services and amenities, request their cars from valet, control their guest lists, handle their deliveries, communicate with the concierge and building staff, and much more. The application was developed by Miami-based Simplikate, known for its award-winning mobile apps.

“We are very pleased to add this new application to the impressive list of daily conveniences and services afforded our residents at Opera Tower,” says Developer Tibor Hollo, Chairman & President of Florida East Coast Realty (FECR).

“Simplikate’s Smart Building system lets residents manage their home from their smartphone or tablet no matter where they are, and it’s all seamlessly integrated with staff operations,” says Tushar Patel, Simplikate Founder/CEO. “Opera Tower residents now are able to manage their guest lists, order their cars from valet, track their deliveries, reserve amenities, and more from the Opera Tower Mobile App. FECR is setting the standard by offering cutting edge mobile technology for their residents to use for free,” he adds.

Sales at the luxury tower overlooking Biscayne Bay continue to move along at a steady pace. With 475 residences already sold, just 140 residences remain. Prices at the mixed-use tower start at $270,900, and sales are handled by industry powerhouse Fortune International.

Residences at Opera Tower feature stainless steel appliances, European gourmet kitchens, luxurious baths, and granite countertops. Opera Tower also offers residents 24/7 security, high-speed Internet and cable television, supervised garage parking for each residence with available 24/7 valet service, a lushly-landscaped recreation deck overlooking scenic Biscayne Bay (featuring an oversized swimming pool and multiple whirlpool spas), and a fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio and weight training equipment. A social hall, media room, and fully-equipped business center also add to the building’s impressive list of amenities.

Opera Tower’s location in the heart of the vibrant Media and Entertainment District offers residents a wide array of dining, shopping, and entertainment venues. Opera Tower is just blocks from the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts—with its world-renowned Opera House and Performance Halls—and the AmericanAirlines Arena—home to the electrifying Miami Heat and other major concerts and events. Further, Margaret Pace Park, Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center, Bayside Marketplace, Museum Park, South Beach, Brickell, Midtown Miami, Wynwood, and the Design District are all at residents’ fingertips.
