The approximately 2800 SF of common facilities include a dining room and kitchen for occasional shared meals, lounge, common laundry, children's play room, guest rooms, office and multi-purpose room. A vertical atrium contains open circulation to all units and common facilities and includes a glass roof to support year round use. Upper level units have their front doors on suspended walkways overlooking the atrium, establishing the framework for cohousing members to experience a rich environment for encounter and for oversight of the activities of daily life. The landscape is designed to support children's play and includes gathering areas for outdoor cooking and eating as well as a sunny roof deck for gardening and other outdoor activities. The parking is underground and includes a mezzanine area with workshop and storage.
The building is being designed to meet Passive House certification and will include many other sustainable features. The estimated completion date is February 2020.
CDC provided partial management services to help establish a robust and effective organizational structure for the cohousing development process, guide the site selection, coordinate site negotiations and selection of the professional team.
