There’s a saying, “Wherever you go, there you are.” Nitesh Gandhi, Founder & CEO of Locale wants to make it so that wherever you go, you have a home. Locale (@StayWithLocale) is an innovative, design-led aparthotel company based in Austin, TX. They partner with real estate owners and developers to design, furnish, and lease vacant units for short term stays.
Aparthotel is a relatively new term that we wrote about on the Homebase blog, Aparthotels: How Far Will Multifamily and Hospitality Converge?. Some might see it as the next evolution of Airbnb, but Gandhi envisions something bigger, Living as a Service.
In this conversation Blake and Nitesh discuss:
- What Aparthotels are and how they benefit real estate owners and developers.
- How Living as a Service will introduce a new level of flexibility for both independent and corporate workers.
- The role of community when building vibrant multifamily, mixed-use properties.
