This past Sunday, Common members, friends, and our team all met to celebrate the opening of our first West Coast neighborhood, SoMa. We’re working to build a strong community in our homes, and a major part of this is bringing people together.
Our community in SoMa was immediately off to a great start as one member from Common Albany in Crown Heights joined as House Leader as soon as our San Francisco announcement was made. Having Kamilah help start this brand new community is essential. Our House Leaders are the glue that keeps their home together; from welcoming new members to planning events our House Leaders are there.
One of the benefits we were so excited to provide through Common, is the flexibility to live in community wherever you are. With our West Coast neighborhood opening this past summer, we’re achieving that. Members who have to move for work or would like to get to know a new neighborhood can transfer homes within 24 hours. Across our four homes now open, many members have taken advantage of this flexibility, experienced new homes, and became friends with their new suitemates.
At our first party on the West Coast, we were excited to take advantage of the beautiful roof deck, enjoy some drinks and fantastic conversations with Common team, members, and their friends. As the party wound down, guests played Jenga, Cards Against Humanity, and enjoyed feeling very retro by snapping some pics with the home’s polaroid camera.
Common Minna’s members are already planning several outings for September and October. Some ideas were local architecture tours of San Francisco, a Stanford Football game, and a Dragon Boat Festival at Lake Merritt. Look out for recaps of those member-led events soon and read about our past events here.
