Inside a Latch Retrofit with YD Development

YD Development sits at the intersection of art, efficiency, and technology. By prioritizing innovative proptech in their buildings across New York City, their goal is to challenge the status quo and lead real estate’s evolution—or what they call the R/Evolution. 

When it came time for them to choose a building operating system for their retrofit project, Latch became the natural choice. Thanks to thoughtful design, increased efficiency, and a better resident experience, the YD Development team chose to use Latch for three projects in Brooklyn, one in Manhattan, and one in Philadelphia.

In his latest YouTube video, YD Development Partner Derek Hsiang sits down with Latch General Manager Ryan Flynn to discuss the details of the Latch product system and the future of proptech, smart home, and real estate industries.

From unlocking four different ways to streamlining building operations by eliminating rekeying, YD Development is using Latch to create a more modern full-building experience. “The Latch lock is far and away the best combination of durable, good-looking hardware and really intuitive software that I’ve seen in the access control industry,” said Hsiang. 

Watch the full video to learn more about the Latch system, pricing, and get an exclusive inside look at the Latch installation at one of YD Development’s buildings in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
