Yahoo Finance: I checked out WeWork's 'communal housing,' and now I'm considering a move
Of course, the concept of communal housing isn’t novel. But WeLive aims to combine the best aspects of dorms, boutique hotels and apartments, and it charges up to $2,800 a month for this unique living situation. If you’ve ever stepped into a WeWork, there’s an inviting, modern, minimalist aesthetic that’s been infused into WeLive, too.
Isn't novel? Junior assisted living is the best thing since senior assisted living! So what's the catch?
There’s a laundry room with ping pong and pool tables, arcade games and beer on tap. Members do have to pay for laundry — $2 for a wash, $2 for a dry. And there’s an unmanned “honesty corner” with toiletries for sale. Members use their WeLive app to pick up a bottle of shampoo or a tube of toothpaste if they’re running low and are feeling too lazy to run to Walgreens (WBA). Essentially, WeLive wants to be your one-stop shop for anything you need.
Too lazy to run to Walgreens? What? Something tells me those Viagra prescriptions, boxes of condoms, and home pregnancy test kits aren't going to just magically appear in the honesty corner! Hey, what age group is this place aimed at? Lots of single young men and women living together in a coed-dorm environment and all they can think up is shampoo and toothbrushes? That's it? Seriously? Hahaha!
Seems like they've got the game room covered but what about all the other stuff? Fitness center? Computer lab? Media center? And where are the P-Patch planters? Seems like they don't understand their target market at all!
Well, I hope they at least thought to put mirrored ceilings above the communal waterbeds. Give it that retro 70s feel. Very popular with the ladies.
Enjoy life at Tri-Court with amazing new amenities: fitness center, computer lab, media center, game room, even P-Patch planters. Just be over age 60 with a moderate income.
Bad Mark. Bad! Bad!
I may have seriously crossed the line of polite conversation today. So be it. Behold the power of anonymous blogging. Hahaha! :)
