Olive by Embassy projects will range from 500 to 5,000 beds and be customised with diverse formats and priced competitively to suit respective markets.

“There are over 36 million students in higher education and the migrant millennial workforce is growing at a rapid pace across metros. Olive by Embassy aims to uplift the standard of living for this segment with hospitality services and an ecosystem that will support our country’s youth in their academic and professional pursuits. Additionally, our co living projects will complement and add value to our large tenant base at our Embassy Office Parks,” Aditya Virwani, COO, Embassy Group and Co- Founder Olive, said.

The rooms and living spaces at Olive by Embassy are designed for members to socialise comfortably with a quality palette of furniture, furnishes and functionality to elevate the communal living.
