Taking student living to the next level

At i Live Cologne, today’s students live centrally in the heart of the city with excellent access to transportation. SOINI ASSET teamed up with operator i Live to develop a unique urban living concept.

“A custom concept like i Live Cologne brings us a step closer to the future of housing, especially in university locations facing a housing shortage like Cologne, “ emphasizes Günter Berlo, SOINI ASSET. “People living at i Live enjoy more than just their own bright, cozy apartment. They also have access to community activities. Residents can use a specially designed app to book and use additional services including a concierge service and an online store. Additional offers including i Live events (e.g. club nights, concerts, etc.) give residents access to valuable experiences that go beyond just living.

The result is a young lifestyle product that has met with overwhelming demand. All 286 apartments were snapped up in less than three weeks after being listed. It’s a record that speaks for itself,” says Günter Berlo, pleased with the project’s popularity.

“What makes SOINI ASSET so special is that they always seem to have an eye for the latest trends and are able to develop concepts that address a specific niche at your location. They’re a company with vision that I have enjoyed working with for years.”
