From the article:
“Urbin, a co-living, co-work concept, will soon have a location in Miami Beach. This week, the City’s Historic Preservation Board gave the final approval needed for the construction of the brand’s proposed six-story co-living and hotel project in the 1200 block of Washington Avenue. The new building will contain 49 co-living units, 56 hotel rooms, and retail and restaurant space. An adjacent 1960s office building will be renovated and restored as a co-work space. It will also contain a wellness center for residents and hotel guests on the first floor, rounding out the brand’s live, work, wellness theme.
Rishi Kapoor, founder and CEO of Location Ventures, the developer of Urbin said, “The Urbin thesis is all about bringing inclusion in the urban core and that’s why we spell our brand name U-R-B-I-N.”
The goal of the Urbin brand is “to provide affordability, sustainability and mobility to tenants in core urban neighborhoods across the world” starting in South Florida. In a hearing before the Planning Board in February, Kapoor said Urbin will provide a “progressive housing solution” at an “accessible price point.” His vision is to not only provide options for living and working but also wellness. By giving locals an opportunity to live in a neighborhood they couldn’t normally afford, commute times and pollution are reduced, making for a better quality of life, he said.”
