Founded in 2016 by four Belgian entrepreneurs, Cohabs is a Brussels-based fully integrated coliving platform that owns and operates medium-size shared residences (usually 10 to 20 bedrooms). The company provides a unique community experience through fully furnished, premium accommodations in city-center locations of international cities. The 50-person company has a current portfolio of 1,550 bedrooms across five cities (Brussels, Paris, New York, Madrid, and Luxembourg) with the majority of its team and assets based in Brussels at this stage. With the ambition to reach 5,000 bedrooms across 11 cities by the end of 2026, Cohabs looks to initiate the next step in expansion through increased institutional support. This milestone transaction will allow Cohabs to benefit from investor’s know-how in structuring, financing, and operational growth due to their extensive resources and experience in developing high-quality real estate platforms around the world. Natixis Partners acted as co-financial advisor to Cohabs in this transaction.
