The NYPFC arranged for a briefing and tour of Common Baltic, a co-living space in Brooklyn. The concept of co-living is well-established, but millennials in urban areas within the United States are giving it new life. Since 1980, the number of young people living with roommates has doubled. Co-living is particularly attractive to international residents who relocate to cities within the United States. In fact, over a third of Common’s residents are international. Co-living offers residents the opportunity to use common spaces for co-working, networking, and building community. Sixteen journalists covered the press event and heard from Common’s CEO, its Head of Design and Construction and an international resident from The Netherlands.
