Three more urban cohousing communities for anyone who's counting 1. Cardiff Place in Victoria, BC 2. Cambridge CoHousing (MA) 3. Old Oakland CoHousing (CA) I know, we're not built yet but groundbreaking's scheduled for May 27. Yay! Now this is really urban. Can any other group claim being across the street from a 25 story hotel/convention center, and having half a dozen even taller skyscrapers within 4 or five city blocks of our door!. Also probably 100 restaurants within five or six blocks (we're a block from Oakland's Chinatown), five of them literally across the street with two or three more new ones right downstairs in our building. Anyone who finds clustered housing in the midst of suburban sprawl areas unappealing, might be most inspired by the areal photo of Windsong (Langley, BC, outside of Vancouver) and its surrounding area that I saw when visiting that community last fall.. In that picture, Windsong looks like the veritable oasis it actually is. I could imagine drive through the boring suburban sprawl on my way home from work. I think it would make me appreciate my cohousing home all the more when I got there. Joani Blank moving from Doyle St. to Old Oakland because the latter is more urban!
