Movie marathons, fitness classes, potluck dinners, karaoke battles — the amenities offered at WeWork’s new co-living space read like a list of college dorm shenanigans. But the New York-based startup’s latest venture is actually geared towards well-to-do Millennials seeking a sense of community and a relaxed, month-to-month rental agreement.

The concept has been tentatively titled “WeLive, ” and its flagship residence is located in a former office tower at 110 Wall Street. The studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments are equipped with cable and Internet access, and feature private kitchens and at least one private bathroom. Each unit also receives a monthly cleaning that’s included in the rent, with the option to tack on services such as laundry and dry cleaning.
