Behind The Doors Of WeLive
With co-living spaces popping up around the country, co-working giant WeWork has jumped on the micro-unit bandwagon, recently unveiling WeLive, the company's co-living concept, in both NYC and DC. Bisnow managed to get a tour of the facilities for an inside look at these amenity-packed adult dorms.
The first impression at WeLive's first space, at 110 Wall St, was of these sweet hallways converted to lounge space—common areas when residents want to branch out from their tiny abode.
The space is already in use, by both humans and bicycles.
Here's a peek at WeLive's studio-plus room, which will run residents over $2,500/month in NYC. The room sports two beds—one hidden behind cabinets in the living room area, and one just behind the kitchen (pictured).
The unit's kitchenette comes well-outfitted, with cutlery, dishes, and even WeLive branded mugs.
And despite the micro-unit's scant space, the bathroom gives residents a relatively wide berth to work with.
The building's common kitchen area comes stacked with free food, a full oven and even a chef whipping up good eats.
Here's a snap of some of his culinary creations.
The kitchen is one of the building's many common spaces where WeLive is putting its co-living vibe to task.
Although residents might be more likely to gather in their very own theater room.
Not to mention, it doubles as an exercise studio for the many free fitness classes on the premises.
When residents finish exercising they're welcome to swing by WeLive's whiskey bar—although they'll have to bring their own whiskey. The co-living space apparently has another bar in the mailroom.
There's no rooftop bar, however—instead, the company is installing a series of hot tubs out on the terrace...
...where residents can enjoy this sweet view of Brooklyn (where residents would be living if they weren't in adult dorms).
The amenities don't stop on the rooftops at WeLive. Even the laundry room is packed with pool, ping-pong, old school video games and (of course) a tapped keg.
We stopped by the the building's marketplace on the way out, where residents can pick up toiletries and other supplies for their pads, all on good faith—there's no cashier.
