About Columbus

Columbus is the state capital of Ohio and one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States with a population of nearly 900,000. Downtown Columbus has a multitude of attractions appealing to a variety of interests ranging from the Ohio Statehouse to the hands-on Center of Science and Industry. Arts and culture thrive in Columbus, and cultural institutes like the Kelton House, Kings Art Complex, and Columbus Museum of Art are worth a visit. The Scioto Mile is one of the country’s most impressive green spaces featuring 175 acres of parkland set along the banks of the Scioto River. Nature lovers will also love Topiary Park with its radiant gardens and life-size depictions from a famous painting by French post-Impressionist artist George Seurat. Artsy Short North is one of the prominent neighborhoods of Columbus delighting residents with boutique shops, independent art galleries, and exciting entertainment venues. German Village sits just south of downtown and the picturesque brick houses of this 19th-century neighborhood were once home to many German immigrants. The same immigrants laid the foundation of the Brewery District, which has undergone a revival with new breweries, craft beer bars, and a flourishing dining scene.

What are Co-living Spaces?

Co-living, also known as co-housing, house-sharing, or room-sharing, is a growing trend in big cities across the country. Co-living is when a group of people—often strangers—come together to share common living spaces, save money, and enjoy a more affordable lifestyle. Apartment buildings dedicated to co-living situations will offer 2 or 3 bedroom units with common areas including a living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedrooms and bathrooms may be private or shared. Co-living differs from a typical shared rental (roommate) situation in that co-living spaces are frequently furnished, don’t require long leases, and almost always include WiFi and utilities. They can also include housekeeping services and some even offer catered functions for tenants, housemates, and their guests. Co-living property managers handle billing and repairs of the building, generally through an app. The typical demographic enjoying a co-living lifestyle are millennials and young professionals in large cities and tech hubs such as San Francisco or Austin, but they are also starting to pop up in cities around the world. People of all ages who find themselves in need of affordable housing are increasingly looking to co-living as a viable option.
