In October 2016, New York-based co-living space Common opened a location in Washington, D.C.’s Truxton Circle neighborhood with 24 fully-furnished bedrooms and prices that started at $1,700 per month. Now, it plans on expanding to Chinatown with move-ins in November and rents starting at $1,845 per month.
As first reported by Bisnow, this 14-bedroom space will be located near the corner of Sixth and I streets NW, across from the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue.
Amenities will include built-in closets, weekly cleaning services, fully furnished rooms, en-suite balconies, and a furnished rooftop deck. There will also be elevators and free in-suite laundry.
Gas and electricity are included in the membership cost, according to the Common website.
This new location in D.C., known as Common Bowman, is Common’s fourteenth location around the country with other sites in New York City, San Francisco, Oakland, and Chicago..
In June 2017, Washington City Paper reported some locals near Common’s first D.C. location were concerned about how the co-living space could affect the neighborhood. BZA officials also noted that the project may not be allowed in the area under the existing zoning code.
