New co-living space coming to Shaw by December

Rents will start at $1,700/month with all utilities included

This Thursday, co-living company Common released a landing page with new details about their first property in Washington, D.C.

Common’s new location will be located in the Shaw neighborhood. The residence will feature 24 fully-furnished bedrooms, each with a private en-suite bathroom and shared space. For a 12-month lease, the price will start at $1,700/month with all utilities and Wi-Fi included. The public is able to sign up to live in the building with an expected opening in December 2016.

The company also provides weekly cleanings, free on-site laundry, and a constant supply of products like laundry detergent and paper towels.

In order to become a member, those interested must apply online and later be screened, background-checked, and interviewed. Members are able to commune together with member-led events and programs like book clubs and potluck dinners.

Since Common launched in early 2015, it has since opened three co-living buildings in Brooklyn and two in San Francisco with over 5,000 10,000 member applications received.

[UPDATE: A previous version of this article stated that Common plans on expanding to San Francisco. The co-living company has already opened two locations in the city.]
