Common’s first co-living entry in Chicago opened on July 16 with Common Damen, a three-unit, 12-bedroom residence. The new construction provides 6,050 sf of living space.

Each of the 12 furnished, move-in ready bedrooms connects to an open-concept living room furnished with sofas by Interior Define. A kitchen, dining space, and in-unit laundry are also included.

Across the building’s four stories are a ground floor community space for member-led events, a roof deck with views of the city, and front and rear terraces for outdoor living. Like all of the other co-living properties managed by Common, Common Damen will include weekly cleanings, shared supplies, and all-inclusive utilities like enterprise-quality Wi-Fi, and heating and air.
