Against the youth housing crisis, CDC Habitat and Wellow join forces
The Wellow platform, a player in collective, social and urban housing, and the landlord CDC Habitat, announce that they have signed a partnership. Together, they create a co-living offer, a housing model that the landlord seeks to develop. “We want to promote the deployment [d’habitat partagé] in the territories, particularly in Île-de-France“, declared the Île-de-France interregional director of CDC Habitat, Eric Dubertrand, who recalled “the increasing difficulties encountered by young people in accessing housing in tense areas” And “increased pressure on rents“. The coliving offer is, for the habitat operator, “in tune with new lifestyles“. He hopes this formula will help to combat the vacancy crisis in large housing.
A “strategic step”
For its part, Wellow, which manages a hundred housing sites in Paris, considers this agreement with the subsidiary of the Caisse des Depots as ” a strategic step in accelerating our ambitions“. The company aims to have a stock of 400 housing units, i.e. 1,600 shared rooms in Île-de-France.
A first lease of a residence of 1,600 m², within the Village du Réemploi in Montreuil, formalizes this partnership. The project includes 18 housing units, a cultural café-bookstore, spaces for associations, pop-up stores linked to recycling, a collaborative vegetable garden, and an open space dedicated to second-hand goods. The building must be able to accommodate 60 young workers.
