Coliving, Density & Multifamily Demand After COVID-19
The exponential increase of urbanization in the past 8-10 years has dramatically driven up the cost of living for everyday renters in the US’s largest cities, all while wages have remained the same. Added apartment density and innovative multifamily typologies like coliving have sprung up to help combat the housing crisis that millions of Americans face. As real estate developers rethink the new normal brought on by COVID-19, many are now asking, “Should I be building for social distancing?” In this event, Brad Hargreaves, the CEO, and founder of coliving pioneer Common, will talk about how the approach to density changes in a post-pandemic world and how cities will need the affordability density brings now more than ever before.
Participants in this webinar will:
- Attendees will understand how cities have used density to drive affordable housing in the past to understand how they should develop for the future.
- Attendees will understand the coliving management model, specifically Common’s, so they can better apply it as a multifamily typology in their portfolios.
- Attendees will learn the difference in developing a traditional multifamily project versus a higher density coliving project.
- Attendees will learn how Common is expanding and adapting to the changes brought on by COVID-19 to understand the future of coliving in the multifamily industry
