Common To Open Second D.C. Co-Living Space In Chinatown
The company is planning to open Common Bowman in D.C.'s Chinatown neighborhood, it announced Monday, with residents moving in as soon as November.
As with the initial announcement of its first D.C. space, Common did not give the exact address of the property. But a spokesperson said it will sit near the corner of Sixth and I streets NW across from the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. The co-living space will have 14 bedrooms, the spokesperson said.
The residences will begin at $1,845 a month, with utilities, WiFi, cable and cleaning included, according to its website. The units will come fully furnished with closets, laundry machines, kitchens and balconies.
The location will be Common's 14th in the country. It also has outposts in New York City, San Francisco, Oakland and Chicago. Common in October announced its first D.C. location, a 24-unit co-living space in an Oaktree Development-owned building in Truxton Circle.
That location welcomed its first tenants in March. It has faced some opposition with the Board of Zoning Adjustments in June upholding an appeal from a neighborhood group that opposed the co-living space opening in the area.
Unlike Common's inaugural D.C. location, which is in a quieter neighborhood dominated by single-family rowhouses, Common Bowman sits in one of the most bustling areas of the city, just two blocks from Capital One Arena (formerly Verizon Center), Gallery Place and the Chinatown Metro stop.
