What is co-living?

Co-living can be broadly described as self contained market housing with shared communal amenities. Co-living accommodations are high-quality, purpose built, professionally managed buildings that create a shared living experience through the provision of well-designed spaces and a sense of community. The Draft New London Plan acknowledges that large-scale purpose-built shared living (co-living) developments may have a role in meeting the housing needs in London.
