Stay the night / Work the day

PodShare is a membership based live/work community, by purchasing a pass to one location - you have access to all PodShare locations during that duration.

We recognize the rise of the Freelance economy leading to minimalist social travel (digital nomads) and the need for affordable housing in urban cities (for travelers, temps and people moving to the city) so we custom build “pods” as a model for adaptive re-use of space (commercial, warehouse and underdeveloped neighborhoods) with basic necessities included (some food, utilities, WIFI, bikes, 24 access code)

  • Hollywood 2 pods ($50/night) + creative lab ($15/day)
  • DTLA Arts District: 18 pods for $40/night
  • Los Feliz: 12 pods for $40/night (opens July)

We want access points across the city. A social network with physical addresses. Instead of one building with 100 beds, we want 100 pods across the city with access to co-working tables, DIY hardware and software, shared kitchens, charging station, power naps and a friendly community of Podestrians!

TRAVELERS

These Podestrians leave their home city, state or country to explore Los Angeles with the intention of #socialtravel

TRANSITIONERS

Moving to LA with no friend’s couch to crash on, these Podestrians cook to save and spend hours on Craigslist

TEMPS

Production assistants, summer jobs, film festival volunteers or class – these Podestrians are gone all day and pass out early

Access not Ownership
Welcome to the Rise of the Freelance Economy
The future is “access not ownership” so we are establishing “access points” across the city to allow members to
lay their head, pull up a chair, meet other Podestrians, charge devices, use the community kitchen, showers, lockers, laundry and WIFI.
Millennials don’t own a gym at home, they buy a membership. We don’t subscribe to cable television, we watch Netflix.
We don’t buy CDs we stream music. American car sales are on the decline because we Lyft or Uber.
We can rent a bicycle, get a degree online, have our meals delivered to us, and document our entire lives on social media.
We make decisions based on trust (reviews) + value (location) + price point (affordable).

FAQ

1.WHAT IS A POD?

Pods are custom built minimalist spaces for social travelers. Twin or queen sized. Some pods convert from bed to desk (see Murphy Pod), some have closets and trundle areas for suitcases and all have a 22″ flat screen TV with Netflix, Hulu, games plus personal outlets, LED night light and a memory foam mattress.

2.IS THERE A CURFEW?

PodShare is a live/work space for millennials. There is a keypad system for 24hour access, and an RA and manager on the property.

3.WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE RATE?

All PodShare locations are open to members – so you have a hub across the city of LA whether you need a desk, a cellphone charge or a power nap. The kitchens are stocked with breakfast foods and the bathrooms have clean towels, toiletries and toothpaste for your use. All PodShare computers have DIY software programs like FCP and Adobe.
