The developers of the Quay Tower in Brooklyn Bridge Park will be going extremely high-tech by installing Amazon Echo devices in every unit. Echo devices communicate with Amazon’s intelligent personal assistant service Alexa, which is capable of voice interaction, making to-do lists, setting alarms, providing weather and traffic information, playing music and more.

“At Quay Tower, we’re working hard to deliver homes that meet modern-day needs of active New Yorkers and their families,” Robert Levine, president and CEO of RAL Companies, said. “We’re trying to take that to the next level by integrating Alexa.”

Quay Tower’s partnership with Amazon is the first of its kind for a Brooklyn condo, according to Patch. The 28-story building, which is expected to be completed next year, will also have other smart devices, such as voice-controlled Nest thermostats and Lutron Caseta light switches and dimmers, Patch reported. The new 126-unit building may be smart, but it won’t be cheap – prices for a two-bedroom apartment will start at $1.9 million.
