As project proponent of Concord Oasis Mini-Ecohousing, I (Mark DeMaio) have made a life passage decision to move to the Tahoe area to live with my significant other. As such, I am faced with the difficult decision of significantly letting go of a ten year green community building effort and I desire to make some serious divestiture of property associated with this project. I seek to find a group, project proponent, or individuals that can commit to making this project an organic infill cohousing reality (ala N-Street). This wonderful 3 parcel environmentally designed subdivision includes 2 two completed buildings, one of which is a Real Goods flexible floor plan demonstration program home, the other a smaller older home. Under construction is a combination common house/ multiple household flexible floor plan research quality straw bale building at the mid-framing stage that I am committed to having completed by no later than March, 1999. The neighbor on the parcel behind us has an oversize lot with a sf home with fantastic live work/ expansion potential on a busy corner lot and has indicated a willingness to market the project with mine. Because of the flexible floor plan nature of these 4 SF buildings/ lots on about an acre, it is difficult to describe the project in terms of the number of units, but I think the following approximate information is useful: 14 bedrooms, 10 baths, 4 kitchens, 4 "Kitch-ettes"on 6500 +? sf of interior space. 7-9 small households could live here easy; 4 households (1large) do now. The completed project could sell for somewhat less than $1,000,000, with individual buildings priced from $179-$325K (3br/1Ba to 5br/3ba). I am interested in any and all offers, particularly those that would keep this small cohousing seed source together. This would be an excellent opportunity for persons interested in a cohousing coop, with a possible link to a Tahoe/ Foothill Oasis project that I'd like to be involved in. Add'l neighborhood info: We're located on a bus line to BART, adjacent to a "wild" canal. The neighbor on the other side from us has indicated that they will be retiring and moving 2 years from now or less. On the other side of this adjacent neighbor is a new neighbor very interested, and possibly willing to participate in this project. Across a private drive from this project is a church with vacant infill type land. Bring your freinds, family and core group members and move in !!!!!!!
