San Francisco Bay area cooperative/intentional community/mini-co-housing

We are forming a small urban intentional community while we are here on
the peninsula 20 miles south of San Francisco. We are negotiating to
purchase one of 8-4 unit apartment buildings facing the lagoon between
San Mateo and Foster City. There are fruit trees and room for an organic
garden. We are seeking 2 or 3 other "families" to co-own in some form of
a cooperative--something between intentional community and cohousing. We
hope to share meals, gardening, and other interests. Perhaps other
buildings will come up for sale in the future so we can create a larger
urban community. For someone who has been living with a lot more space
around than is usually available in this densely populated area, this
location is wonderful: lots of birds, sunrise over the water, access to
biking/walking path 1/2 block away, with city amenities of proximity to
freeway and public transportation, etc.

After several years of attempting to form community on our 40 acres in
rural NW Washington, we have returned to California to live and work for
2-10 more years. We will probably return to the farm in the future. That
