Finding an affordable apartment in a convenient location in Boston can be a challenge. Co-living has appeared on the CRE scene as an affordable alternative to the traditional multifamily set up, but many remain unfamiliar with this concept. However, as Boston’s workforce presence grows and the demand for affordable apartments in central locations rises, it’s time for co-living to be taken seriously.
While developers can see co-living’s potential to provide returns, several questions about the future of this unique concept remain. Are shared spaces the next solution for affordable housing? Will the pandemic impact interest in this housing alternative? What does this mean for new development and mixed-use options?
