Yoga, a monthly cleaning service, and a person who will help plan your Sunday night dinner. These are the type of things that will be offered when WeWork opens the doors of its first residential building.
Fast Company recently wrote that a group of WeWork members and employees are currently testing out the coworking company’s first residential offering in Manhattan. The Wall Street location will have approximately 200 residential units on top of seven floors of WeWork office space.
The Fast Company article offers the first insight as to how these buildings will operate. Think somewhere between a nice college dorm and a boutique hotel:
All units are fully furnished, decorated, and set up with cable and Internet at move-in. A monthly cleaning is included with rent (members will receive monthly bills for cable, utilities, Internet, and more frequent cleaning). Every floor has a common area such as a yoga studio or a movie theater. And the building has a community manager who will help plan Sunday-night suppers, game nights, karaoke, and fitness classes.
WeWork is planning a residential concept similar to the Wall Street location in Crystal City, but the opening date, originally set for last November, has been pushed back to later this year.
