Harambee Homes, an 8 unit development built largely by the residents in
the Lawndale Neighborhood of Chicago that evolved toward cohousing during
the development was featured in the Summer 1995 issue of the Cohousing
Magazine The phone number listed for Catherine Moore (who came to the 1995
cohousing conference in Boulder)  is 312-522-1500.  Partners in the
project were developer Peter Bigelow and Lawndale Community Church at 3825
Ogden Av. 

I would be very interested in an update about Harambee homes.

Cohousing Magazine subscriptions are $30 per year. Write: The Cohousing

Hal Mead of the Chicago Cohousing Network, H-MEAD [at] NWU.EDU, who subscribes
to this list wrote that article.  Hal, any chance of an update?
