Co-living is becoming a reality. California Landmark Group is including co-living units in its latest multifamily project, C1. The 68-unit project in Marina del Rey’s arts district will feature 51 market-rate units, with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom configurations, and 17 fully furnished co-living units. This will be the largest co-living project in Los Angeles to date.

Co-living has grown in popularity as a solution to the rampant affordability problem. “We felt there is a need to address the affordability gap and co-living is certainly one of the answers.  it makes sense in many respects,” Ken Kahan, president of California Landmark Group, tells GlobeSt.com. “Everyone knows LA has a huge housing problem.  Given the high cost of housing and the lack of available land to construct new high density apartments co-living is one way to add more housing and more people per parcel.”
