1. You’ll Love The Viking Theme
According to the Encylcopedia of Brittanica: Valhalla, Old Norse Valhöll, in Norse mythology, the hall of slain warriors, who live there blissfully under the leadership of the god Odin. Valhalla is depicted as a splendid palace, roofed with shields, where the warriors feast on the flesh of a boar slaughtered daily and made whole again each evening. They drink liquor that flows from the udders of a goat, and their sport is to fight one another every day.
The Valhalla in Oliver, lives up to this name with playful Viking imagery through out the building and with its other aesthetic elements.

Based on the efforts made to ensure the safety and welling being of their residents, you could say the Valhalla is as safe as Fort Knox. The building had a huge audit done, including seeing if a person could scale up to the large communal deck facing the river valley and trust us when we say they could teach other buildings strategies for maintaining a safe and peaceful building. Experience, new and increased lighting, new door latches, new fencing and a whole bunch of over cool stuff (well cool if you understand the nuances of this).
