Suburban retrofit???

I heard on the news last night that the former army base (Fort Devens) in
Shirley, MA. was being used for lots of different purposes and that
thousands of jobs had been created. 

They were trying to decide what to do about 300 units of housing that were
still left. They specifically said they were looking for ideas that
recreated the kind of close knit community that existed among the army

It sounded like a good idea for a cohousing developer. IT could make 3 or 4
different cohousing communities. The buildings are there and empty, there
are probably lots of facilities that would be amenable to common house type
activities, and it is in a really nice rural area about 40 minutes outside
of Boston.
