Co-living company Common continues NYC expansion

Co-living company Common announced the launch of two new homes in Ridgewood, Queens and Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn: Common Cornelia and Common Lincoln.

Common Cornelia is the company’s first home in Queens, while Common Lincoln marks its seventh in Brooklyn, where Common launched in 2015.  Common now has 14 homes now open across four cities — New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.

“In New York City, we have seen incredible demand for a better way to live with roommates — one that’s safer, more convenient, and way more enjoyable. We’re so excited to continue our growth in Brooklyn and to launch our first home in Queens as we expand the Common community throughout the U.S.,” said Brad Hargreaves, founder and CEO of Common.

Common acts as a property manager to make finding and living with roommates easier. Potential members apply online, and are screened and interviewed before joining a home.

Membership at Common includes community-led events, weekly cleanings, shared supplies and all-inclusive utilities such as wifi, heating and air and on-site laundry.

Common members also have the option to move to a different home within Common’s network when space is available.

Common Lincoln — developed with Michael Jacober — provides 17 co-living bedrooms in two adjoining buildings with shared community space. Pricing starts at $1,400 per month at Lincoln and $1,700 per month at Cornelia.
