From the New York website: New Yorkers like to co-work, but in London, people apparently love to co-live.Next week, west London’s Old Oak opens to residents. It’s a brand new 550-unit co-living tower – the largest of its kind anywhere in the world, according to Curbed.
Rising 11 stories, the mixed-use development, designed by PLP Architecture and developed by The Collective, will include shared kitchens and furnished en-suite bedrooms. It is also packed with amenities including a gym, roof terrace, spa, movie room, library and game room.
The building will also include a public restaurant and a co-working space.
And despite the dorm-room style accomodations, the rent is steep. Asking rents range from £225 to £270 (roughly $329 to $400) a week. However, that does include taxes, Internet, bi-monthly room cleaning and linen service and utilities.
