Local Features

Local businesses are an essential part of a neighborhood community. At Common, we highlight the incredible restaurants, cafes, and shops around our coliving homes.

We hope that Common members patronize these businesses because they provide opportunities to make connections, explore the city, and try something new.

Mentioning small businesses in our blog has to do with supporting the local community and strengthening the local economy. These businesses aren’t just “moms and pops” — they’re all about family—brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, cousins, neighbors, friends—all the people who make your community a wonderful place to live.

Moving to a new home in a new city can be a scary, stressful process. Our goal is to provide help to experience that is easy and holds the excitement of things to come
