Millennials get a bad rap when it comes to housing. They’re told that if they simply stopped buying avocado toast, they could afford a home. For some, this may be true. But for others, particularly in coastal cities like New York and San Francisco, high housing prices mean a first home, let alone a vacation property, are out of reach.
Until now. YOTELPAD Mammoth, the brand’s third U.S. location following the successful launches of Park City and Miami, is slated to break ground this spring. Offering 156 efficient PADs (condos) starting from just $300,000, it looks like a high-tech, high-design pad is well within reach, either for a first home or a second vacation style option and possible rental income.
The PADs range from 410 to 629 sqft (32-58 sqm) and start at $300,000, while larger properties, dubbed DOMO, will offer up to 1,503 square feet of space in 21 townhomes priced from $1.5 million. As with all YOTEL locations globally, YOTELPAD Mammoth will offer robust community amenities for all ages and attentive service utilizing the latest smart living technologies.
Located in the year-round destination of Mammoth Lakes, Calif., which boasts one of the longest ski seasons in the country, the property will feature a seamless indoor-outdoor experience for owners and guest. The Terrace will serve as a social hub with a bar, numerous fire pits, a year-round pool and hot tub, a dog park, a dedicated area for yoga, in addition to table tennis and bocce ball courts. The community fireplace lounge will also include the first-ever YOTELPAD bar. Combining a newfound love among travelers and homeowners alike for community spaces, KOMYUNTI will serve as a multi-generational space, offering a place for guests to warm up fireside, mingle at the bar, dine at the on-site restaurant or take over the fully equipped kitchen available to owners for a home cooked meal with friends and family. Little ones will be plenty occupied with endless activities in dedicated zones for kids and teens. Other amenities in and around MISSION CONTROL (the central lobby area) will include a 24/7 gym, steam room and GRAB+GO light bites. Gear storage, as well as bike storage, will be available to owners seasonally.
The homes seamlessly blend smart tech and modern style, with a sleek, minimalist design. Key features include YOTEL brand’s signature adjustable SmartBeds™ and adjustable mood lighting, a smart TV, multi-power points and easy connectivity for PAD guests. Additional tech-forward features will be available via the YOTEL app including check-in, keyless entry, on-demand Fix-it and Cabin Crews, to-go mobile dining orders and more.
Signature amenities include robot butlers making in-PAD deliveries, to a robotic luggage concierge, as well as app-based ski and car valet, as well as Amazon lockers.
Sounds pretty good to us. The next question: is avocado toast on the restaurant menus?
