Newly designed co-living apartments in D.C. bring sophistication to group housing

April 13 at 6:30 AM

Some new co-living developments focus more on shared space and communal resident activities. Common, which has co-living apartments in San Francisco and Brooklyn and recently opened a building called the Richardson at 410 to 412 Richardson Pl. NW in Shaw, provides furnished six-bedroom apartments, each with a shared kitchen, and communal activities led by a resident “house leader.”

“We do co-living rather than traditional apartments because we believe we’re addressing a use case — living with roommates — that is ubiquitous but totally unaddressed by real estate developers today,” says Brad Hargreaves, founder and chief executive of Common.
