URBIN was recently featured in the South Florida Business Journal article titled “Renter Nation” detailing the rapid rise in cost of living burdening South Florida’s workforce – and soon its employers.

From the article:

One way to make apartments more affordable is to live with roommates, a trend Miami-based Location Ventures aims to tap into with its URBIN brand. The developer has co-living and coworking projects under development in Coral Gables, Miami Beach and Coconut Grove, with another planned in Fort Lauderdale. The company will rent by the bed for just over $1,000 a month and sell other on-site services, such as wellness plans.

“Our thesis is to put people in the heart of the most in-demand submarkets, right in the urban center,” CEO Rishi Kapoor said. “The trade-off is a smaller footprint for personal space, but they have the amenity that is the community.”

However, not all cities allow co-living. Kapoor said cities should embrace creativity in housing design to enhance affordability and allow more of the workforce to live here.

Each URBIN is an oasis, a layered community of thoughtfully-designed spaces that blend everyday necessities and luxuries to create a destination for residents to live comfortably and provide guests a welcome experience. To live work well at URBIN, residents have access to a wellness center, a market, and a full program of workspace with private and shared offices.
