Why Partner With Ollie


Ollie’s density driven coliving model optimizes financial returns on a $/sqft basis relative to traditional multi-family, establishing a lower price-point for our tenants while delivering the highest and best use for your asset.

Brand Strength

As the pre-eminent coliving brand, our unique interior design identity, values based community programming, coliving household technology and excellence in hospitality service, deliver a brand experience that will enhance your asset.


Our floor plans are adaptable. During architectural feasibility, we ensure our design is readily convertible to a conventional condominium or multifamily plan, preserving a future buyer’s optionality.

Institutional Scope

As the coliving industry’s premier operator of large scale institutional grade assets, Ollie-flagged projects have raised hundreds of millions in equity and debt financing at highly competitive rates.
