Can I Take a Tour of Co-Living Buildings?

Co-Living Buildings

Are you ready to take a tour of co-living buildings? Good. Imagine you live in Atlanta and just landed a job in San Francisco as a software engineer. You visited San Francisco exactly 20 years ago - when you were seven. It goes without saying that you are not familiar with the city. You search for rentals on Craigslist only to find the best deals - $3,500 for a studio - are snapped off the market within 12 hours.

And these studios that are rented like hotcakes? They resemble burned-out bunkers. You wouldn’t want to touch them with a ten-foot pole, let alone sign a $3,500 p/m lease!

This, my friend, is where co-living can be the perfect solution. It’s a soft landing in an expensive and unfamiliar city. Let’s take a tour of co-living buildings with me…

Take a Tour of Co-Living Buildings (or Three, or Four, or Five…)

Most co-living spaces are in urban centers, near jobs, schools, and public transportation. The co-living spaces are far more livable than what you would find in a typical sublet or lease moving to a big city. You’re not about to embark inside a frat house, co-living buildings are often luxury apartments, outfitted with new and tasteful furnishings, high-quality appliances, and stunning common areas.

If you enter Common, a co-living Chicago company with buildings in Uptown, Ukrainian Village, Lakeview East, and Pilsen, you will see a magnificent common area where residents may gather. It looks something like this...

Another popular co-living Chicago company is CityPads. CityPads prides themselves on renovating old, historic buildings in Chicago. One example is the historic “Hazelton” building in Uptown. Comprising mostly of studios, the Hazelton is outfitted with Class A (read: luxury) amenities. 

Home to a speak-easy in years gone past, the space has been repurposed as a lounge and rec room for the tenants.
