Co-living startup Common has opened its third Harlem location in the St. Nicholas Historic District, better known as Strivers’ Row for the long list of African American luminaries who lived along the two-block stretch. Common brings its modern approach to the area, with a handful of private bedrooms now available at 267 West 139th Street from $1,600 to $2,200 a month.

The residences are located in a mixed-use building on the corner of Frederick Douglass Boulevard and 139th Street, abutting the historic brick townhouses designed by Stanford White (of McKim, Mead & White) on the north side of 139th Street and right next to Bob Dylan’s former home at 265 West 139th Street.

The fully-furnished interiors feature restored original details, including multiple fireplaces in each unit and exposed brick. The shared spaces have modern conveniences like a washer, dryer, dishwasher and everything else you’ll need down to the pots, pans, and utensils. Included in the monthly rent are all utilities, WiFi, and weekly cleaning of the common areas, so you won’t have to worry about negotiating all that with your roommates.

Since launching in 2015, Common has expanded to seven cities and currently has about 1,500 residents across its properties. New York remains Common’s biggest market (and home base, the first building to open was in Crown Heights) with over half of those residents based in the city. There are 22 Common homes open in the city at the moment and about 30 more in the pipeline, with two locations in Brooklyn and one in Hell’s Kitchen coming later this Spring.
