The hottest housing trend for 2019. Shared communal rental housing. A large home with multiple bedrooms (some with private bathrooms) and shared communal spaces with planned activities. Correct me if I am wrong but my great-grandma ran one of these and it was called a boarding house.

However, corporations are now commissioning specific builds for this purpose. The hottest new model is called Quarters.
