In March 2019, Common partnered with New York real-estate developer Tishman Speyer to launch the brand Kin, whose "buildings will feature playrooms, family-size units and on-demand child care through an internal mobile app that also helps connect families looking to share nannies and babysitters."

Noah operates “Class B and C multifamily buildings where renters earn 40 percent to 80 percent of the area median income” and as of March 2020, is operating “500 units over five properties in Hampton Roads and Winchester, Virginia.”
From 2015 to 2017, Common raised $63.35 million in funding. The latest Series C funding round led by Norwest Venture Partners raised $40 million.
