Durham Coho Wins 2014 Golden Leaf Award
Durham Coho is proud to have been selected to receive a 2014 Golden Leaf Award, thanks to a nomination from our architects Ellen Weinstein and Ken Friedlein. http://www.wfarchitecture.com/
This is a big win, given we were in the toughest category of “large development,” with 7 submittals from such entities as Duke University and the Durham Bulls Park.
I like to think the judges took into account our creativity and community-building. We purchased an infill-lot last used for a tire service shop that required environmental clean up. The half-acre lot is now home to our 4-story intentional community of 37 cohousers. We are arguably part of downtown Durham’s revitalization; we enjoy the abundant opportunities to be part of a re-emerging neighborhood of local food restaurants, a central park and farmers market, and music venues.
We’d also like to win the People’s Choice Award, and here’s where you come in: check out the competition, read our write up, and take the time vote for the People’s Choice Award:http://www.durhamgoldenleaf.com/Enter–UploadLD.html
Come see us next May when you attend the 2015 National Cohousing Conference!
