We are a global, tech-enabled, urban living brand serving renters in…

Starcity is one of the largest developers and operators of coliving in the United States. Coliving is a new category of rental multi-family housing that reduces the cost to the individual, increases the community by sharing more space and activities and simplifies the ease of use by providing plug & play living spaces. We have built four proprietary software products in house to deal with payments, pricing, operations, and our mobile app allow members to connect seamlessly. Given pricing for coliving is far different than multi-family, this is a moat that will help us continue to keep communities at a high occupancy rate. We also have a flourishing data science practice that allows us to make highly informed decisions around site selection, pricing, marketing and incentives for retention.
