Dream Retirement Competition IL

“Our goal with this Win Your Dream Retirement Overseas Competition is to show readers just how accessible and enjoyable life there really can be.”

InternationalLiving.com, the retire-overseas experts, is hosting a Win Your Dream Retirement Overseas Competition, which will send one winner (along with a friend or spouse) to the Algarve, Portugal—for a full month in 2022, free.

The prize includes round-trip flights from the U.S. to Faro, furnished accommodation, plus a stipend to cover living expenses.

“At International Living, we believe that you don’t have to be rich to live well in retirement—you just need to know where to go,” says Jennifer Stevens, Executive Editor, International Living.

“And one of the spots we recommend today is Portugal’s Algarve, where retirees can find excellent bang for their buck—along with sunny skies, friendly locals, strong infrastructure, and truly postcard-worthy surrounds.

“Our goal with this Win Your Dream Retirement Overseas Competition is to show readers—by sending ‘one of their own’ to see for themselves—just how accessible and enjoyable life there really can be.”

Portugal is a perennial front-runner in InternationalLiving.com’s Annual Global Retirement Index as one of the best countries in the world to retire. Portugal’s appeal, for most expats, begins with the Algarve. That’s the southern stretch of the country running from craggy Sagres in the west to the low-lying Spanish border in the east. It is a region of wild coastline interspersed with some of the best beaches in the world.

“A few hours south of Lisbon is the Algarve region with some of the warmest weather in the country,” says Terry Coles, IL’s Portugal correspondent. “This region of Portugal has earned its reputation among expats by providing a resort feel, while at the same time maintaining the authenticity of this beautiful country. Scores of golf courses, from easy to award-winning, stud the coastline.”

As the description for International Living’s Win Your Dream Retirement Overseas Competition puts it, the winner: “Must be willing to relax… enjoy the good life… explore beaches, restaurants, and markets… take walks… attend festivals and other cultural events… maybe try a language class… live like a local… make new friends. The ideal candidate is of (or close to) retirement age, hails from the U.S., and believes the world is full of opportunity and that in the right places abroad, it is possible to live better, for less.”

Although no writing experience is necessary, the winner will be asked to share impressions and experiences with readers of InternationalLiving.com’s magazine, website, social channels, and e-letters. The ability to create video “postcards” is a plus.

The competition is an opportunity to shine a light on the real-world experiences of somebody who is considering the benefits of a retirement abroad.

Those wishing to enter the Win Your Dream Retirement Overseas Competition 2022, can do so by filling out the written application form, which asks questions about why applicants are interested in life abroad. From the initial pool of applicants, editors will narrow the field to 20 finalists and ask those winners to enter the second round with a video introducing themselves.

The deadline for entry is midnight EST on October 18, 2021. Candidates must be ready to fly to Portugal in 2022.

L37 Completes Construction on Serif, Part of a Mixed-Use Development…

Published

News Image

With Serif being at the center of the renaissance now underway in San Francisco’s Mid-Market neighborhood, our goal is to reignite the area while staying connected to its rich history and culture,” said Joy Ou, managing partner to L37.

L37, a San Francisco-based real estate development and management firm, announced today that construction is now complete on Serif, the residential component of a mixed-use development comprised of 242 condominiums, The LINE Hotel, retail and dining experiences and the legendary Magic Theatre located in San Francisco’s eclectic Mid-Market neighborhood.

With prices starting in the low $500,000s, Serif is already seeing strong interest from homebuyers with over 40 residences under contract since the sales gallery opened in June. Along with the completion of construction, three model residences are now available for private tours. Serif offers studios, junior one-bedrooms and one- and two-bedroom residences ranging in size from approximately 450 to 1,200-square-feet. Minimalistic and modern, with an eye toward the urban context, each residence at Serif is a blank canvas on which residents can impart their personal style. Serif is raw and industrial yet thoughtfully crafted – every detail is designed to complement the vibrancy of Mid-Market.

“With Serif being at the center of the renaissance now underway in San Francisco’s Mid-Market neighborhood, our goal is to reignite the area while staying connected to its rich history and culture,” said Joy Ou, managing partner to L37. “The Serif experience is bringing back the allure of Mid-Market by reawakening the theater, dining, retail and nightlife scenes that culminate into a thriving, interesting and inspiring place to live.”

Located on the corner of Market and Turk, the dynamic architectural design of the 12-story building is the result of a collaboration between conceptual architect Bjarke Ingels Group of Denmark, architect of record Handel Architects of San Francisco and interior architect IwamotoScott, also of San Francisco. The result is unlike anything in the city – in form, in color, in style. The bright white, textured facade takes cues from contemporary architecture, while the flatiron at Turk and Market recalls early 20th century San Francisco.

Decidedly modern with an urban flair, the interior design brings an artistic attitude to the residences by combining angular forms with raw materials and finishes, such as concrete, blackened steel, ceramic-and-stone tiles, wood and a palette that blends striking black and white background surfaces with highlights of warm, natural hues and finishes.

With the building’s unique shape, each residence is available in several different sizes with perfectly placed windows to connect the building’s interiors to the surrounding Mid-Market area. Functional and flexible floor plans include open kitchens and living spaces, while select floor plans feature flexible offices and dens. Buyers will also have the opportunity to upgrade their spaces with Bumblebee Spaces, which allows residents to maximize their space with a bed and storage that disappears into the ceiling to create space for a fully functional home office or additional flexible space.

Upon arrival, residents are welcomed into the lobby by a 24-hour attendant, polished concrete floors and white walls punctuated by a curated selection of artwork. Wood-veneered millwork and blackened steel adorn the reception desk and mailroom, while ceramic-and-stone tile walls feature geometric patterns that recall facets of the facade.

Serif’s residents and their guests have exclusive access to a wealth of amenities. Chief among them is the landscaped rooftop solarium, which serves as both a co-working and entertainment space equipped with a library, bar, restaurant, a chef-grade kitchen for private events and indoor and outdoor spaces – where an airy lounge atmosphere complements bird’s eye views of the neighborhood. Other amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga room, a pet spa, dog run and a bike parking and storage room equipped with controlled access.

At Serif, home is only the half of it. Serif also shares its space with the Magic Theatre and the effortlessly cool The LINE Hotel, a lifestyle hotel that is part of the Membership Collective Group portfolio, which includes Soho House. With locations in Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Austin, the LINE is known for its exceptional mix of entertainment, programming and culinary experiences. Expected to open spring 2022, the 236-room hotel will feature a ground-floor bar and restaurant in addition to a rooftop bar with panoramic city views. The LINE’s design ethos draws from both past and future, incorporating the neighborhood’s complex history and embracing its vibrant evolution into twenty-first century San Francisco.

While the Turk side of the building will feature Alfred, a popular coffee shop that will open its third location with the LINE brand, the Market side will be home to a restaurant which includes a bar and outdoor dining space operated by the LINE. In addition to the non-profit Magic Theatre, Serif shares the space with several local businesses.

A confluence of the eclectic, Mid-Market is no longer filled with vacant storefronts, it’s where a new generation of restaurants and bars are cropping up alongside long-standing landmarks of the City’s theater, music and LGBTQ scenes. A short walk from the city’s best – Union Square, the Financial District, SoMa, the Tenderloin, Nob Hill – Serif truly is the middle of everywhere.

SoMa, the Tenderloin, Hayes Valley, Nob Hill, the Mission, Union Square, the Financial District—all are within a short walk of Serif, as are icons such as City Hall and the Ferry Building. Biking is also an option, with four bike-share docks within three blocks. For longer journeys, Powell Street Station, one block away, is a major stop for Bart, Muni, and one of the last remaining cable cars in the city. Numerous buses and the F Market streetcar also pass right in front of Serif.

Serif is located at 960 Market Street. To schedule a visit, book a private tour or to learn more, visit SerifSF.com or call 415-805-8896. San Francisco-based Polaris Pacific, the leading real estate sales and marketing group for new residential communities, is handling the sales and marketing for the building.

About Serif

As part of a mixed-use development in San Francisco’s Mid-Market neighborhood, Serif is a 12-story, 242-residence condominium building, comprised of studios, junior one-bedrooms, and one- and two-bedrooms residences ranging in size from approximately 450 to 1,200 square feet and priced from the low $500,000s. Located on the corner of Market and Turk Street, Serif is designed to complement the energy and eclecticism of Mid-Market while reimaging the architecture of Market Street circa 1905. The bright white, textured facade takes cues from contemporary architecture, while the flatiron design recalls early 20th century San Francisco. The striking architecture is the result of a collaboration between conceptual architect Bjarke Ingels Group, architect of record Handel Architects and interior architect IwamotoScott. Serif provides residents with exclusive access to a wealth of amenities such as a landscaped rooftop solarium equipped with a library and bar, a chef-grade kitchen for private events, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a pet spa, dog run and a 24-hour lobby attendant and building security. Serif will share its space with the sumptuously hip The LINE Hotel, retail and dining experiences, and the legendary Magic Theatre. For more visit, SerifSF.com.

Technology Veteran Joins Synergy to Deliver the Industry’s First Truly…

Published

on

Today, Synergy Global Housing (Synergy), a global leader in extended-stay business travel and human mobility program management, announced the hire of Head of Information Technology, serviced accommodation technology veteran Lance Bradwell. Bradwell will report to Synergy co-founder Henry Luebbert and lead the company’s growing 16-person technology team.

“Lance understands the needs of both our guests and our clients and brings a wealth of industry experience and knowledge to his new role,” said Luebbert. “As we sprint to deliver the industry’s first truly live global booking platform in Q1 of 2022, Lance will be hyper-focused on ensuring our technology solutions remain nimble for future adaptation and are fortified to the latest data protection best practices.”

Bradwell joins Synergy after more than two decades with BridgeStreet Global Hospitality, most recently as the company’s Chief Information Officer. Fresh off last month’s announcement of a major investment in industry technology firm Coded, Inc. — by Synergy’s innovation lab, REVE — Bradwell’s hire adds to the growing stable of assets driving the company’s industry-leading technology solutions.

“Our investment in technology looks to find ways to bring efficiencies through automation, instant access to our vast global network of vetted supplier partners, and ultimately make it easier for our clients and guests to use our products and services on a day-to-day basis,” said co-founder Jack Jensky. “While our people will always be at the center of our guest-centric service delivery, we believe technology will exponentially increase their ability to meet the evolving demands of today’s extended-stay business traveler.”

Technology is always a hot-button topic in the serviced accommodation industry as many providers compete to deliver live global apartment availability with instant booking capability.

“I was attracted to join Synergy because out of all the agencies and operators I’ve come across in my two decades in the industry, I believe they have the infrastructure, platform and financial backing to deliver live apartment availability,” said Bradwell. “The company also has a very experienced team in place, and they are building their technology stack the right way with data privacy and protection at the forefront—and it’s an honor to work for two founders with such a passion and vision for the sector.”

Synergy’s data privacy and protection initiatives are led by global information security and infrastructure veteran Mitch Christian, CISSP – CISM. The company recently completed its annual SOC 2 Type II audit, which is available upon request.

Pacific Workplaces Announces an All Access Pass

Published

on

Pacific Workplaces, the San Francisco-based provider of flexible offices and coworking with 18 locations, announces today that it is rolling out an All-Access Pass that gives users the opportunity to use vacant private offices or meeting rooms anytime at any of the 18 Pacific Workplaces locations.

The pass is designed for professionals that might Work-From-Home (WFH), but want to check into a private office close to home to do some concentrated work when the home environment falls short. For each booking, the user will be directed to a vacant office or meeting room available that day, which may differ each time.

Laurent Dhollande, Pacific Workplaces CEO explained: “In this time of diminishing but still high vacancy, this is a good way for us to make our idle assets available to our members, while at the same time helping people move out of their home office when they can’t do it anymore because of the kids, the dog, the roommates, or the lack of infrastructure at home, just to name a few reasons why people use this product. We have already piloted that concept with great success and we are extending the offering to the entire portfolio.”

Amanda Leffew, Director of Marketing for Pacific Workplaces added: “The All Access pass is one of the tools we are using to make people feel comfortable going back to the office, along with the ‘Safe Offices For Vax’d Users’ program. We want to offer our members another inexpensive option to ease their way back to their nearby office. The price for the pass is $269/month, a fraction of the cost of a dedicated private office which often exceeds $1,000/month.
