Overwhelmed with the stress of London renting? You’re not alone. But while we can’t change the entire housing crisis, we can help find clever solutions for those of you who are looking to make London your home.
Enter: Folk, the co-living brand on a mission to set a new standard for renting in London, with wellness and community at its core. And now West-Londoners can rejoice, as they’ve just launched short stays at its third site in the capital, Florence Dock, in Battersea. The building, which has recently opened, is located riverside in SW11 just a ten-minute walk from both Clapham Junction and Wandsworth Town Stations and will be bookable from one night to 89 nights, with prices starting from £90 per night.
Florence Dock features roof terraces with views of London, a huge co-working space, high-spec community kitchens, a well-equipped gym, cinema room, gaming room, lounge, and on-site bar, of which all short-stay residents can now enjoy alongside longer term renters. The rooms are spacious with individual amenities, and there is a real community feel to the property. With regular timetabled events such as mixers, group workouts and social events that vary from rooftop parties to festive dinners, it’s the ideal way to meet new people and experience community living in a city that can sometimes feel daunting.
The best part is that Folk is continuing to disrupt the rental market by eradicating the traditional pain points tenants face such as run-down accommodation, lack of outdoor or working-from-home space and the rising cost of bills. Folk allows residents to have their own studio apartment, whilst getting access to all events and communal areas including gym, cinema, and co-working space, and covering all bills, removing the worry of rising costs which many are facing in the current climate. The short-stay availability will allow the public to experience co-living, including all the shared spaces and events programme, on a short-term basis with no contract.
Folk is providing a new way of living and working, which is hugely relevant for the new way of life many people are now adapting to. Striking the perfect balance between the comfort of a private studio with the joy of sharing the good times in communal spaces –socialising and working from home has never been easier. Folk’s speciality on the market is offering mid-sized co-living communities, which are big enough to meet plenty of new friends and connections, but not so large that it’s overwhelming.
