City living for the modern family.

Kin, first-of-its-kind housing, driven by community, powered by technology, and tailor-made to help families thrive in today’s cities.

Our philosophy

Kin is a partnership between Tishman Speyer and Common, founded on the belief that families live better when they’re part of a strong community.

The convenience of city living has more families than ever choosing urban environments over the suburbs. But while city life is convenient, it can also be isolating and expensive. Hectic schedules, lack of kid-friendly spaces, and the rising cost of childcare all make living in a city more difficult for families.

Forming relationships with other families not only fosters a richer social life but allows you to share in the joys and burdens of raising children. Members of a community can also better support each other, whether they’re recommending a great pediatrician or empathizing about the struggles of potty training.

This philosophy is at our core. At Kin, curated family programming and events will give you and your family the opportunity to meet your neighbors, while innovative technology makes sharing resources, like nannies and toys, easier than ever before. And Kin’s first-of-its-kind app puts these features at your fingertips—use the chat function to set up playdates or the childcare concierge to book a last minute babysitter for date night.

Living at Kin allows you and your family to spend time on the things that really matter—we’ll take care of the rest.
