The world moves and makes us live in a constant process of change and search for opportunities; not always easy task. Long working hours, the difficulty to move from home to work, as well as shortages and high prices of rents of dwellings, make new generations and entrepreneurs – accustomed to change and mobility – look for new and best alternatives.
A problem that was for the first time in Silicon Valley before the arrival of numerous young professionals that they were not to live, and that quickly gave a solution in the so-called revolution of coworking, successful collaborative model in which entrepreneurs and SMEs share a same workspace to develop their projects independently.
After this, was born the coliving, system in which what is privileged is the life in common in areas designated for this, looking for a side, the exchange of experiences and connections, and secondly the optimization of resources (financial, space, etc.).
Buildings under this concept, often with departments of few square meters, with ergonomic, furnished as beds that are hidden (wallbed), kitchenette and bathroom with space to install a washing machine. Also have several facilities to share with the rest of the tenants, such as gym, terraces, games, kitchen, dining rooms and coworking spaces 24 hours, which allows a significant savings of time and money on transfers from the House to work.
Additionally, these spaces have all basic services: electricity, water, heating, permanent toilet, etc. The premise is to leverage resources to the maximum, overturning the valuable time to share knowledge and experiences with others.
This trend has led to a revolution in real estate and became a success in recent years in countries such as England and the United States, then get also to Asia and other countries of Europe as well as England. Companies like Lyf, in China; The Collective, in London; or WeLive in Singapore, today set the standard.
A success that is also based on the fact that the coliving not only was transformed into an excellent alternative for its users, but also for the current investor, as a solid and safe investment in bricks vehicle. You add to this the advantage that brings the strategy of placing their property in areas of high demand, designed, in addition, with the objective of minimizing the common expenses of co-ownership.
Coliving became a Chile shortly after, in South America the coliving also is has been positioned. In Argentina, for example, and to the deep financial crisis, there were various buildings under this concept. House Campus, it is one of the most recognized brands, with eight properties of these characteristics, and other 3 in construction. Most are proposed as space of crossing to different urban tribes, between young single people, students and tourists.
In Chile, some projects are approaching this concept, offering extra further than the traditional barbecue areas or swimming pools. In Chicureo and Apoquindo, for example, already two real estate have complexes that provide shared work spaces to its users, as well as circuits of trekking and jogging track.
Following the line of the successful international examples, real estate hUB is working on a network of projects coliving at national level, which already has a building in pre-sales in Antofagasta, another build in Santiago, and a third planned for the eighth region.
The building in the northern city, which will become operational in the second half of 2021, has ergonomic spaces in their departments and areas of recreation and coworking, besides a high connectivity and proximity to the main service.
«Thinking about the needs of people today, the space we build has common areas that will allow residents to interact and cotrabajar; panoramic terrace, barbecue areas and others», says Gonzalo Cabello, general manager of real estate hUB.
