Gravity Co-Living. A more sustainable rental option
With market research showing an overall 30% increase in co-living spaces since the beginning of the pandemic, the next few years are showing steep rising interest and value in co-living platforms. Interestingly, whilst Asia was the first region to spot the potential of the co-living system, it is now the UK which leads the way in co-living locations and investment opportunities across Europe.
Not only does the rise of co-living spaces connect with a changing world of tech-first jobs, remote anywhere workers, business start-ups, entrepreneurs and graduates who need flexible, easy living, co-living is also a sustainably driven rental option.
Did you know that cities are currently home to around half the population and produce around 75% of the world’s greenhouse emissions?
According to RSA (Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce), ‘Unlike flat shares and other types of shared living arrangements, co-living explicitly seeks to promote social contact and builds community.’
Gravity Co-Living is not only supplying rental accommodation but is contributing to a better, more conscious lifestyle.
Sustainable living through efficient utilisation of space:
Gravity Co-Living properties like Finsbury Park and West Court are modern forms of communal living for like-minded individuals to live, work and socialise together in one housing area. An increased housing density ultimately means that co-living is taking up less land area, which would have otherwise been cleared for many individual houses.
Sustainable living through communal sharing:
Gravity Co-Living is based on a foundation of community. Sustainable co-living is the sharing of assets. The central principle of co-living is the building of an eco-system that promotes community building, support, and connection. With such an eco-system, all sorts of resources are shared, borrowed and swapped. Apart from reducing energy consumption, this Gravity Co-Living support system encourages members to create and incorporate more sustainable routines in their daily lifestyles, such as carpooling, buying more consciously and sharing everyday items. Over time, this will accumulate and effectively reduce waste and consumption.
Co-living provides a sustainable solution to overcrowded cities and growing populations:
With people over-flocking to cities, a shortage of housing to rent on the market, the efficiency and organisation of urban spaces is paramount. Co-living is a practical way to lessen the burden on cities.
