What we do

Destroying Loneliness

We match you with people who share your values and interests, so your housemates become your future friends.

Saving You Money

Our apartments are built around friends living together, so we design for efficient space use. And, because we own the entire process - from design to construction - we cut out the middleman and pass the savings to you.

Quick & Easy

Secure your next apartment and your future friends from your phone or laptop in under 15 minutes.

Why this & why now?

No Bigger Problem to Solve

According to one study, employment in the Bay Area around San Francisco would be about five times larger than it is but for tight limits on construction. Tot up these costs in lost earnings and unrealised human potential.

Missing Middle Class

There are solutions for lower income individuals in terms of non-profits, section 8, city, county, and state programs (even though as evidenced by tent cities these solutions do not work).The rich can take care of themselves. However, the middle class is left to fend for themselves in a world they are increasingly priced out of. People in the middle class often have to work 2 jobs to stay afloat, are unable to save anything on a monthly basis, and often pay 50% and higher to their landlords in rent.

Social Shifts in Society

Since the mid 90’s society has gone through a structural shift. Individuals now get married later in life if at all. People are moving back in droves from the suburbs to the cities. People would rather spend their discretionary income on fun experiences rather than saving to eventually buy a home.

Our Solution


Smarter living

We’re redesigning the 3- and 4- bedroom apartment as a place to live with friends. Our apartments boast open concept kitchens, spacious living rooms, and noise isolated bedrooms, so you can live in comfort without compromising your privacy.


A New Commons

Our apartment buildings feature a large common space where people can mingle and meet. Get to know your neighbours and stay connected on your building’s private Facebook group.
