Ramona St., a vacant lot that was once considered for a Water and Power Department building. (Image courtesy Google)In a statement released Thursday, a developer negotiating with the city to build an affordable housing project in the city’s Civic Center said the project will be compatible with the historic district.The City Council on Monday unanimously approved a motion allowing the city to begin negotiations with National CORE for the development of a senior affordable housing project on a city-owned parcel across the street from City Hall.The proposed development will provide 112 apartment homes for low-income seniors with an average affordability of 50 percent of the area median income, with 10 percent of the apartment homes set-aside for permanent supportive housing.“We are honored to have been chosen to work alongside the city of Pasadena to provide an affordable housing community that complements the beautiful historic Civic Center District,” said National Community Renaissance (CORE) President and CEO Steve PonTell in a prepared statement.“At National CORE, we have a long history of creating high-quality, healthy, equitable communities that offer accessibility, affordability, stability, diversity, and safety.”The site at 280 N. Ramona St. is one of two coveted spots near City Hall that has been much-discussed in terms of development. The other site is the Julia Morgan YWCA building at Holly Street and North Marengo Avenue. So far, the council has not voted to allow the city to enter into negotiations with a developer for the YWCA site.“National CORE has proven to be a highly-skilled, mission-driven developer with one award-winning community in Pasadena,” said Director of Housing William K. Huang in a prepared statement. “We are eager to begin the negotiation process to develop a new community that will provide critically-needed affordable housing for Pasadena low-income seniors.”With 10 percent of the apartment homes set aside for formerly homeless seniors, National CORE, in partnership with Union Station Homeless Services, will provide the platform for formerly homeless seniors to begin the process of rebuilding their lives. With the programs and services provided by Union Station, residents will have a support system as well as access to programs and services to promote housing stability and individual well-being.“With almost 510 years of experience working with seniors within our adult programs, Union Station Homeless Services is excited to partner with National CORE on a permanent supportive housing community dedicated to serving the unique needs of seniors, one of our fastest-growing homeless populations,” said Anne Miskey, CEO of Union Station Homeless Services.“We provide a wide array of supportive services to individuals and families throughout the San Gabriel Valley, including the residents living at Marv’s Place, a community for formerly homeless families in Pasadena owned and managed by National CORE.”Over the next couple of months, National CORE and the city will conduct negotiations over a disposition and development agreement. The final agreement is expected for City Council approval in early 2021, which will allow National CORE to secure other competitive financing and obtain important city approvals.Subject to awards for financing and completion of a city design review, community engagement, and entitlement processes, construction could begin as early as 2022 and completed by 2024.For more information about National CORE’s proposed affordable housing community in the historic Civic Center District, please visit, https://nationalcore.org/ramona.

Morten Hauge, Aspire Global – Enriching the sportsbook experience with Robotip

first_img Share Will Whitehead, mkodo: Achieving sportsbook and casino differentiation through UX April 29, 2020 Related Articles GG.BET embraces improved partnership with Start2Pay January 31, 2020 Submit Aspire builds Q1 momentum through regulated market focus May 5, 2020 Share StumbleUpon With sportsbook operators constantly looking to expand their offering, Aspire Global has unveiled its new Robotip feature, a bot that enriches the betting experience and advises punters on in-play opportunities. SBC interviewed Aspire Global’s head of Sport Morten Hauge, who detailed how Robotip can help enhance the in-play experience for players during the World Cup, as well as how the group has ensured the new feature sticks within responsible gambling guidelines. SBC: Firstly, could you tell us further how Robotip enhances the in-play experience for sports bettors? Morten Hauge: Quite simply put it, enables the customers to quickly get an opinion through statistics, on matches that you would normally have no clue or interest. The bot will search through the markets for the punter, going through the time consuming task of analysing the key stats allowing punters to just place the bet, sit back and watch the action unfold.SBC: How much can the new feature help expand the value of an operator’s sportsbook offering?MH: There are always a lot of live football matches running, and therefore there is always potential for turnover, but bettors don’t know what to bet on, so they stick to the major leagues. By applying the Bot we expect our customers to engage in a wider range of leagues, and in doing so bringing more value and revenue from a wider scope of leagues.SBC: Will the bot feature increase the personalisation in a sportsbook offering? MH: Yes, we are working on letting the customer set up their own scenarios based on live statistics instead of the pre-defined scenarios.SBC: Can the new feature be maximised on all platforms? MH: Yes, the widget is extremely easy to stage and integrate to our current partners. As long as we have branded colour guidelines it will be on site within one or two days after requesting the feature. Since it is from a widget it can be place on basically any webpage which makes it a useful tool for acquisition. A smaller ‘acquisition bot with banner is ready and should be starting to see traffic very soon.last_img read more
