Olive 8 – Unit and Amenity Photos: Blue = the New Green

We popped into Olive 8 on Friday after their buyer event the day before.  It was nice to finally see the finished product after going through and taking construction photos late last year.

Units seem to look much bigger when staged/vacant as opposed to having ladders, boxes, and saws everywhere.  Probably one of the most noticeable differences was the high ceilings.  Leslie Williams of Williams Marketing pointed out several other small details that she said many buyers really liked, such as the tiling around the tub plus the lights above the tubs and under the cabinets.

Leslie also made sure to point out the size of the private decks, which are very comfortable in size–plenty of room for creating an outdoor sanctuary to enjoy sunsets & wine.

Another unit that turned out really well is the open 1 bedroom.

There are of course more resident amenities that are shared with the hotel.  The spa seemed somewhat busy, so we didn’t get more than just a cool picture of the sign…

Pretty cool pic right?

The fitness room is actually more than three times bigger than what’s shown in the photo below.  To the left is a wall where there’s another large area for aerobics/yoga/stretch area.

…and now for the best part– the pool!  No, we didn’t stick our heads in to see what the underwater stereo system sounded like, but the actual came pretty close to the rendering.
