Co-working & Co-living: Creating Community at The Collective

One of our goals as a company is to be a solution for people to get around cities where they live, where they work, and where they play. Our screens are in apartment lobbies, in corporate offices, and on jukeboxes in bars.

Now, we’re excited to bring our real-time displays to The Collective, the largest co-living and co-working space in the world, to combine all these aspects into one.

 More than 500 people live and work at The Collective’s space at Old Oak. Here, they have access to everything they need: communal lounges, kitchens, and dining rooms; a gym, spa, and library; and rooms that get cleaned every two weeks.

“Our vision is to shift how we build in cities to create more community-focused living that empowers our members by giving them all they need and more,” said Ed Thomas, Head of Community Experience at The Collective.

Co-living has been on the rise for a few years now, often aimed at millennials who enjoy the convenience and community it offers. We feel the same way — getting around the city shouldn’t be a headache, which is why we’ve made it easier.

 “Mobility is a key piece to creating this new urban lifestyle," said Thomas. "We’re very excited to see how our new TransitScreen is already giving our members useable data to improve their daily travel.
