A WeLive kitchen.
WeWork has set a May 1 date for the public debut of their WeLive co-living community in Crystal City, UrbanTurf has learned. The office building turned co-working and co-living space at 2221 S. Clark Street is currently being “beta-tested” by a select group of new residents.
As UrbanTurf has previously reported, WeLive is an attempt to bring the benefits of communal living to a larger-scale residential project. While unit sizes will range from studios to three bedrooms (and possibly larger), the main draw of the WeLive concept is the use of shared spaces and amenities both to foster a sense of community and to make life simpler for its residents.
Towards that end, units will be fully furnished, decorated and appointed with towels, linens, HDTVs, and built-in sound systems.
A WeLive Bedroom Area
A recently-launched website outlines the various perks and amenities offered as part of a WeLive membership. Those include a yoga studio, shared chef’s kitchen, free coffee and beer, housekeeping services, and bundled utilities-WiFi-and premium cable, as well as more-standardized features like a full-time concierge. Community events will also be commonplace, and a WeLive mobile app will help everyone stay in the loop.
The residential units are not referred to as “apartments” but all the private units have living and sleeping areas and their own bathrooms and kitchens. The website also implies that shorter-term stays and less-private living quarters are available.
