A co-living company is bringing its first shared living space in Queens to, where else, Ridgewood.
Common, a company that provides community-minded shared living spaces across the country, is making its way into the “World’s Borough” as they recently transformed a three-story brownstone home near the intersection of Cornelia Street and Cypress Avenue into 18 co-living bedrooms called, Common Cornelia.
At Common Cornelia each suite features three bedrooms along with a shared bathroom, kitchen and living room. Every private bedroom comes pre-furnished with a mattress, pillows, towels, and a nightstand. Members of the co-living space will also get to enjoy the community spaces such as the backyard and rooftop.
All Common co-living spaces come with all-inclusive utilities including high-speed Wi-Fi, 24-hour surveillance, shared basic household supplies, a high-end kitchen, heating and air conditioning, a smart TV, on-site laundry, and more.
To keep things running smoothly at their co-living spaces, Common acts as the property manager. In order to join a co-living space with Common, potential members must apply online at Common.com, at which point they are carefully screened and interviewed before joining a home.
“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,” said Brad Hargreaves, founder and CEO of Common. “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.”
Common members often participate in community-led events and have the option to seamlessly move to a different home within Common’s network when space is available.
Prices for a spot at Common Cornelia start at $1,700 per month for a 12-month commitment.
Common also recently launched a co-living space in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn, called Common Lincoln, to go along with their expansion into other cities in New York, as well as San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and its recent launch in Chicago.
