In recent years ‘co-living’ (shared housing) has grown in popularity, and two highly recommended New York operators in this space are Ollie and Common. Ollie provide furnished apartments with hotel style services, weekly housekeeping, access to an incredible amenity package and on and off-site events helping you connect with neighbours, make new friends, and discover new things. They promise a more human living experience by focussing on delivering comfort, convenience and community to its residents, as well as significant cost savings. Ollie currently offers 12-month leases at its New York apartments, though they are due to open another location in Newark which will offer 3-11 month leases. Common, meanwhile, pledges to keep the good parts of roommate living, like community and reasonable prices, while removing the annoyances. They offer memberships that invite you to live in the privacy of your own furnished bedrooms in attractive shared suites, with open access to communal spaces, including a well-equipped kitchen, for a minimum lease of three months. One all-inclusive rate covers your rent, weekly cleaning, furniture, laundry, utilities, WiFi, household supplies (think toilet paper, trash bags, cutlery, and more), repairs and maintenance, and access to free community events in your local neighborhood. At Common, each home is designed by their in-house architecture team with roommates in mind. This means no murphy beds, no bunk beds, and no fake walls. Prices at Common are always 20% lower than a traditional studio apartment per month. Common has also designed a chat feature for its smartphone app that allows members to connect with fellow suitemates and other Common members in their city.
