The newest idea for Boston: Quasi-dorms for Adults
Let’s play a game of “would you rather.” You can’t afford to rent a Boston apartment in the city where you work. Would you rather sacrifice urban life, move to a cheaper suburb, and endure long commutes — or live in housing reminiscent of your college dorm?
From From Geek Wire:
Developers are creating a new option in cities with expensive housing markets, offering private bedrooms in shared living spaces, with amenities and group activities. The dorm comparisons are easy, but these buildings are actually upscale, regularly cleaned, and furnished with a stylish millennial aesthetic….
“Co-living” is a novel approach to the housing affordability crisis that many cites — particularly those with thriving tech economies — are trying to solve.
For somewhere between $1,400-$2,200, Starcity Inc. can provide residents with a fully furnished private room, internet, bi-weekly cleaning, utilities, and a shared kitchen. Bathrooms are either shared or private, depending on how much a resident pays.
With $17 million in venture funding, Starcity plans to expand to additional cities.
So would you want to live in a Quaas-dorm?
Dorm or not, this type of housing is one of the ways that life is evolving in booming cities.
