The Company - Starcity Coliving

The Company

The Company

Our mission is to make cities more accessible to everyone

We accomplish this by creating comfortable, community homes that inspire people to live a more intentional life.

There’s a place for you in the city. We’re here to help you find it.

We’ll make the living arrangements delightful and sustainable so that people can stay in cities long-term. We will do this by redefining the meaning of home. Innovative interior-design that increases livable space and smart technology that reduces waste will be at our core. We are building our communities in a way that will reflect the diverse, eclectic nature of each city.

Home is welcoming, relaxing and safe. Home is a group of respectful, warm, and empathetic people. Home is an inclusive, uplifting community. Welcome to Starcity.

Our Team

Our team is small but mighty. We’re a world-class team that’s changing how cities are lived in. We’ve worked at world-class companies like Airbnb, Beats By Dre, CBRE, Credit Karma, Cushman & Wakefield, Facebook, Fairmont, Fitbit, Google, Hack Reactor, Hilton, Pankow, Shorenstein, SOM, The SF Vault, The Standard, Uber, Apple, and UC Davis.
