We’re building a vibrant, progressive 55+ cohousing community in one of our country’s most livable cities. Tulsa features a small town feel with all the amenities of a larger city, and an affordable, low cost of living. Our growing community invites you to join us in bringing the cohousing lifestyle to middle-America. Members joining at this point in the process will be influential in shaping the final design and the culture of our community. We expect construction to begin in the spring of 2020.
Heartwood Commons will be nestled on nearly 5 acres just one block from the Arkansas River with parks, recreation, shopping and health care amenities close by.
We are a group of friendly, engaged and proactive adults working together to create a welcoming community that values connection and sustainability, acceptance and diversity, health and wellness, and fun and support. Some of us are single, some married, some working, some retired. We come from many backgrounds and professions. Our common denominator is that we all share a desire to live in a neighborhood that fosters an active and supportive community lifestyle.
We have the right team in place to help us create our vision. Cohousing expert Katie McCamant is our development consultant. Experienced cohousing architect Bryan Bowen and sustainable design architect Molly Jones are leading us through the design process. It has been so exciting to see our community emerge as they develop the plans for our homes, common house and the overall site.
Our community, located at 7141 South Quincy Avenue in Tulsa, will feature 32 right-sized, energy efficient homes, a common house and many desirable shared amenities and features – all designed to promote a healthy lifestyle, accessibility, and social connections for successful aging in place.
Our 1, 2 & 3-bedroom single story homes will range from 750 to 1,500 sq ft. Arranged in carefully designed quad- and triplexes, all feature an open floor plan with large windows for abundant light, full sized kitchens, generous storage, accessible bathrooms, large covered front porches and private back porches. Walking paths will connect neighbors to one another, the common house and other community amenities.
Our large, bright and open common house overlooks our tree-filled common area and will comfortably accommodate frequent shared meals, large and small group gatherings for activities and celebrations, guest rooms, and creative expression. Features include a large kitchen and great hall with a grand piano, 2 guest suites, an artist/craft studio, a cozy living room and library, laundry, and a large partially screened-in porch.
Other amenities will include a well-equipped workshop and tool lending library, community gardens, greenhouse, Monarch way station, a dog park, hot tub, and fire pit, bike storage, storm shelters, a separate contemplative space for yoga, meditation and self-reflection, and garages/carports.
Community living at Heartwood Commons will allow a lifestyle with less impact on the environment. Our homes and common house will be built for energy-efficiency and health. Our team approach to getting the work done makes life more fun, saves time and money, and strengthens our community network. We’ve adopted consensus decision making as a way to include all voices as we develop solutions that everyone can support.
Why consider cohousing in Tulsa, Oklahoma? Because Tulsa is a livable, progressive city located in the northwest corner of Oklahoma in the heart of “Green Country” where we enjoy 4 distinct seasons, great gardening, and year-round outdoor activities. Named one of our country’s most affordable place to live, Tulsa retains a friendly small town atmosphere while boasting world class art museums and full-time professional opera, ballet and theatre companies; a diverse, award winning music scene (Cain’s Ballroom, Woody Guthrie Center, Jazz Hall of Fame, BOK Center); a growing reputation among foodies and craft beer drinkers, and four university campuses - all in the middle of Indian Country. Our community is situated one block from the Arkansas River Parks walking/biking trails and close to many amenities such as the Gathering Place (recently named USA Today’s most popular attraction), Turkey Mountain Wildlife Preserve, Jenks Aquarium, the downtown Art Deco and Arts District, and a revitalized section of Historic Route 66. Tulsans are known for their friendliness, a culture of philanthropy, and community engagement. A hot-bed for entrepreneurship attracts young professionals from across the country and keeps Tulsa an exciting, relevant, and engaging place to live.
