While jurisdictions are still looking for ways to address home-sharing platforms like Airbnb, the company is exploring a way to circumvent legal concerns — their own apartment complex.
As Fast Company reports, Airbnb has partnered up with Newgard to deliver a 324-unit apartment building with home-sharing built into the lease. The complex, called “Niido”, will deliver in Florida in the first quarter of 2018.
Tenants of the complex have the option of listing their apartment on Airbnb for 180 days out of the year and will share a percentage of revenue with Newgard. Those tenants would have access to an app that provides keyless entry to the apartment and facilitates concierge services like cleaning and linens from building management similarly to a hotel.
“This partnership shows how landlords, developers and Airbnb can work together to create value for everyone and better serve tenants,” stated Jaja Jackson, Airbnb’s director of global multifamily partnerships, in a press release.
Depending on the success of this project, this home-sharing and profit-sharing model may be replicated elsewhere in an attempt to address the legality and affects on supply of short-term rental services.
