More and more Americans are finding it difficult to pay their landlords (as I showed).
The solution, of course, is NOT the Pure House [ht: ja] luxury commune:
Pure House isn’t what most people think of when they hear the word “commune.”
The nine-apartment, 50-bedroom facility in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York, has more residents working on startup ideas than wearing tie-dye and more coders than beaded curtains.
It offers fully furnished units, a clubhouse, stocked kitchen and cleaning service, not to mention luxury health and wellness experiences like community meditation, massages, pop-up brunches, group fitness classes and one-on-one nutrition or professional development coaching.
Its stated purpose is to reinvent the way members live by providing “thoughtfully designed spaces” and “intentionally curated goods and services.”
Naturally, high-end communal living comes with a price tag to match: Residents pay around $4,000 per month.
Even I wanted to join, I doubt they’d let me into their “commune.” And this kind of communal living is certainly not going to solve the growing problem of rental affordability in the United States.
