Co-living startup Starcity plans to build more than 1,000 new small homes in San Francisco and San Jose, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The company proposed 270 apartments at 475 Minna St. in the San Francisco’s South of Market district. It plans to build another 800 apartments near San Jose’s Diridon Station.
Both projects are scheduled to open in 2021, but still require city approvals. Starcity is spending millions of dollars in renovations and new construction of buildings.
“Both projects will bring to fruition a concept we’ve been working on since we founded Starcity–vertical neighborhoods. Our goal is to make urban living accessible to all, and by developing large co-living projects like Minna and Bassett, we’re able to create neighborhoods within each development, fostering community in high-density urban areas,” Starcity CEO Jon Dishotsky said in a statement.
