The Mayumi, a new residential concept by HQ Development, is set to open April 2018 in Los Angeles. Located in the epicenter of Culver City, California, this new space has been fashioned into a remarkable 35-unit flexible-stay residence catering to long-term visitors looking for a monthly all-inclusive residential stay alternative and creative space.
Mayumi provides the best of both worlds – a private haven and social hub. Created to provide an unparalleled living experience crafted on a foundation of design, flexibility and community, Mayumi members can enjoy luxurious private rooms and common areas to connect with others.
Private Rooms: Each member is provided their own unit, with an ensuite private restroom featuring a soft water system and rain shower. An in-room touchscreen managing lights, shades and thermostat provides full control of the environment right at the member’s fingertips, as well as a 50-inch Smart TV with DirectTV service. Mayumi also offers a free private network with high-speed fiber and weekly housekeeping services.
Common Kitchen: Members have full access to a spacious kitchen, including high-end appliances, plates, refrigerator and dining area.
Common Courtyard: The courtyard provides members a place to experience a functional and plush outdoor space to enjoy one of the best perks of Southern California – the weather. The lounge areas provide a great space for social gathering and are equipped with a spacious fire pit area, state-of-the-art BBQ area, as well as places to work, host group dinners or just take a moment to relax near the relaxing water feature.
Long-Term Residential Living: A resident’s stay is flexible with digital keys allowing the member and other members access within the community.
Shared and Private Spaces: Fully furnished and maintained by a housekeeping service. The Mayumi takes care of the all the necessities: utilities, bedding, dishes, appliances. There are also fun community activities planned that members can join such as influencer panels, fitness classes, culinary events, film screenings and more.
The Mayumi model lends itself to the geographically mobile demographic catering to the sought-after talent that is pouring into Los Angeles from around the country. By offering access to flexible-stay options starting at $100 a day for a month stay, The Mayumi offers a unique living option for those wanting the comfort of their own space and first-rate amenities without having to pay the high nightly rate of a hotel stay or living under the thumb of a homeshare owner with all the extra costs that go along with it. Located in Culver City, guests have access to the vibrant creative, startup and events scene nearby.
Los Angeles continues to attract long-term stay visitors for both business and travel and the need for more flexible housing options has become very apparent. “We came to understand that flexible-stay options in Los Angeles are sorely lacking, especially for millennials and creative talent who are looking for an immersive and seamless living experience,” notes Robert Herscu, CEO of HQ Development. “Essentially, we’ve applied the same high-end product, beautiful design and turn-key model that our creative office tenants have enjoyed to the residential co-living concept.”
The innovative concept is a natural fit for HQ Development, whose projects throughout Culver City, Hollywood and Santa Monica have attracted heavyweight companies in creative industries as its tenants. With the opening of Mayumi, HQ Development will mark its entry into the residential market and similarly endow the surrounding neighborhoods with a thriving energy. As Robert Herscu remarks, “Our intent is to make Mayumi synonymous with luxury, flexibility and comfort. Our drive to create a distinctive living experience is as fierce as our residents’ passion to make their mark in LA.”
