with respect to the comment: <It seems to me that an ideal structure in which to create an urban <cohousing facility would be a residential hotel. I live in a close approximation. I have one of the first 8 units of a planned 24 (we are working on building 16 townhouses). The 8 "apartment type units are in an elegant Georgian brick building which began life as a retirement home, with 23 bedrooms, 14 baths, a large living room, study, medium size dining room, sort of commercial kitchen, and a few other miscellaneous spaces we use or will use as storage and common space. It is in many ways ideal for CoHousing. What I see is that it is difficult to create units with a lot of light from rooms off a corridor. Depends a lot on the layout at the amount you spend for rehab. Some of our units are much more attractive than others,. And, we have some of the smallest, most affordable studio-type-size units I've heard of. I like it - I think the idea is basically good.
