WeWork, Common and Founder House: Three companies pushing coliving in NYC

WeWork, a Manhattan-based startup that has been building tech-focused membership-based shared working spaces, is testing the housing market.

The company said it is “in the early beta testing” of a “community-driven living concept” in the city. “This concept is another layer of our platform focused on enabling people to live more fulfilling lives,” the company said in a statement.

WeWork isn’t the only company that is building what some have referred as a new type of shared living, where grown-ups get to basically live in a fancy dorm situation and share amenities and have a baked-in community.

These living situations often center around digital-based solutions, in-house amenities like laundry service and shared community spaces. All require an application to move in.

Here are three companies that offer member-based shared living in NYC.
