Brooklyn, N.Y – ESCC has been selected to design the entirety of the security and communications systems at what will become Brooklyn’s latest co-living development built and activated by The Collective, the most pioneering developer of its kind.
London-founded and newly started up in New York, The Collective has secured the development rights to the property located at 292 North 8th Street located in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.
Says Robert Horowitz, President of ESCC, “The project is by every measure a game-changer in apartment living in NYC. Co-living developments of this size are completely new in NYC and it will change the way people live, offering flexible accommodations and affordably priced solutions. Co-living presents a new and exciting alternative to the traditional housing market.”

To be sure, co-living by its very nature means a more open living environment replete with exceptional amenities such as food halls, gyms, coffee shops as well as a tenancy with a higher rate of turn-over than more traditional apartments.
