Coliving space Common shook up the concept of housing in New York when it launched there. The company xpanded to Washington D.C. in October 2016. This fall, another location is slated to open in Chinatown, with move ins available for November.

The coliving arrangement turns resources that might be duplicated from apartment to apartment such as kitchens, living rooms and laundry machines into shared amenities, while still giving renters personal space in bedrooms. To these basic amenities, the new living space (known as Common Bowman) will add balconies, a rooftop deck and an elevator.

However, the concept is also partially social, and the group plans regular events together to create a sense of community.

As first reported by BisNow, the new coliving space will be located at the intersection of Sixth and I streets NW and will offer fourteen furnished bedrooms for $1,845 a month, including utilities. Part of the draw of of this living arrangement is also its flexibility, as it offers the ability to move to any other Common location on a day’s notice if there is space and the resident so desires. Part of the monthly fee also covers a weekly cleaning service.

Applications are currently open for the space’s November lease date.
