Common Views – Elevated Community Spaces

Imagine if the best rooftop in town were your own. At Common, many members can make this claim.

When we set out to find homes across the country, community spaces are incredibly important. Groups of homes in each neighborhood tend to complement each other with different types of community spaces, so Common members can have options.

Scroll below to see things from our members’ points of view.

SoMa, San Francisco

Common Valencia, minutes away from Common Minna, also has its own private roof deck. Members love dining together, stargazing, and hosting their friends. Pictured here: a recent BBQ at Common Valencia where members of both homes and their friends got together for some good times.

Williamsburg, Brooklyn

An oldie but a goodie. Common Havemeyer in Williamsburg, Brooklyn opened in the Summer of 2016. Members from New York jumped at the opportunity to host many events including BBQs, meet ups, and Sunday night dinner on their large private rooftop. Here’s a patriotic snap of a member during a holiday BBQ.

Every common area in a Common home is fully furnished with our members in mind. From picnic benches and lounge chairs to bottle openers affixed to the roof itself, we’ve got you covered.

Crown Heights, Brooklyn

Ali, a member from Crown Heights, shared this snap of Common Herkimer‘s views of Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan. Common Herkimer is currently the fourth home in Crown Heights which means the community is larger than ever. With Common Kingston, Common Albany, and Common Pacific nearby, members can always find something to do and people to hang out with whenever.

Boerum Hill, Brooklyn

Common Baltic, with its outdoor kitchen and dining area, gorgeous greenery, and expansive views, is already a favorite spot for our members in the neighborhood. Members head up to their private rooftop for impromptu hangouts, regular BBQs, or because that champagne bottle needed opening.
