Catering to budget-constrained consumers, successful co-working start-up 'WeWork' has introduced an extension of the company called 'WeLive.' In adapting the same concepts as its co-working predecessor, WeLive provides affordable living arrangements to tenants while offering them an array of communal perks.

The first seven floors of the New York building are comprised of WeWork co-working office. As it stands, the beta project already has 80 members and is growing, with a total of 200 units available. Most units are bachelor apartments with one washroom and a kitchen. Each space comes fully furnished with cable, Internet and a monthly cleaning service.

The perks of the innovative co-living space include access to a yoga studio, movie theater, fitness classes, laundry services and a social network that allows all members to communicate through a mobile app.
