Common co-living company opens Crown Heights locations

Co-living firm Common has launched two new locations in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

Called Common Herkimer and Common Kingston, the properties increase the firm’s portfolio in the borough to six locations. Herkimer, which was the result of a partnership with Arbie Development, contains suites for 18 residents. Common partnered with Sugar Hill Capital Partners for the Kingston location, which will be able to house 21 residents.

“We’re excited to launch two new homes in Brooklyn, where we first launched Common just over a year ago,” said Brad Hargreaves, founder and CEO of Common. “As we expand Common’s footprint nationally, we have seen tremendous demand for community-minded living. So many people want to live in a place where they actually get to know their neighbors, and we are thrilled to welcome more members into the Common family with the openings of Herkimer and Kingston.”

According to Common’s website, rent for shared living spaces at the Herkimer location start at $1,475, with utilities, WiFi, cable and weekly cleaning included. The new location, which has a laundry, reading room, lounge and roof deck, is already open. Meanwhile, 12-month leases at

Common Kingston start at $1,600 per month. The new branch will start operations later this month.

Common’s new homes come less than four months after the firm launched its largest co-living space at 595 Baltic Street. The company plans to open more new homes in Brooklyn this year.
