Innovative. Sustainable. Home.

Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighborhoods created with a little ingenuity. They bring together the value of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living. That means residents actively participate in the design and operation of their neighborhoods, and share common facilities and good connections with neighbors. All in all, they stand as innovative and sustainable answers to today’s environmental and social problems. Welcome home.

But as the stark realities of Aging in Place emerged, the growing need for homes designed and modified specifically for low maintenance, safe navigation, aging eyesight, home healthcare, cognitive changes and other age-related factors became obvious.
