For the low, low price of $1,800 a month, you can live with 18 roommates in Crown Heights’ newest “community-driven” residence, located directly across the street from the neighborhood’s largest homeless shelter.
Yes, that’s right. Common Living, a new company that aims to provide “flexible, user-friendly” housing, opened its first fully furnished property at 1162 Pacific St. over the weekend, it announced in a blog post Monday.
The building, located between Franklin and Bedford avenues across from the massive 350-bed Bedford-Atlantic Armory shelter, has 19 bedrooms available on month-to-month leases for those who are looking to lean into that whole live-work-play Brooklyn vibe we know you’re striving for: “curated living space,” a private rooftop garden, weekly cleaning service, high-speed Wi-Fi (duh) and a lot of exposed brick. All utilities and housekeeping are included in the $1,800 monthly rate.
Oh, and door locks you can open with your Apple Watch.
The idea, the company said in the post, is to “incubate a strong, tight-knit community of members” who share living space, kitchens and bathrooms. (But don’t worry: they’re cleaned and fully stocked regularly to remove the “hassles roommates face,” they said.)
Sounds like we've got another "millennial commune" in Brooklyn.
If you want a room on Pacific Street, act fast; Common said it's already received 300 applications for its 19 bedrooms.
