We have a site! After several years of searching, we have a site under contract and are seeking others interested in joining us to create a 30-38 unit cohousing community in Pleasant Hill, CA. Our 2.2 acre site is conveniently located near Highway 680 and BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) with easy access to Walnut Creek, shopping, and recreation. A walking and bike path-Iron Horse Trail-runs adjacent to the site and then winds through the county to San Ramon. We are currently assessing the project's feasibility with the assistance of The CoHousing Company and plan to work with Jim Leach as our developer. The City of Pleasant Hill Pleasant Hill, population 31,000, is located 30 miles east of San Francisco. Mostly a residential community with scattered retail/commercial areas, it is bounded by the cities of Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Concord, and Martinez. An abundance of good restaurants and shops are within easy driving distance. Pleasant Hill is also currently redeveloping its downtown to create a contemporary shopping district just blocks from the site. The Diablo Valley Community College and the regional YMCA are located in Pleasant Hill. The city has good recreation programs for all ages and regional walking/biking trails traverse it. Briones Regional Park is just west of the city. The Project The CoHousing Company will work with future residents to determine the design of the community and the type and size of common facilities. Possible common facilities are shared dining, children's play rooms, a sitting area, a workshop, guest rooms, laundry and perhaps a pool. Preliminary price estimates for privately owned townhouses and a proportional share of the common facilities range from $150,000 - $300,000 for 700 to 1600 sf townhouses. Larger dwellings are possible if people are interested. Central Contra Costa E-Z Cohousing is a group of households that have been meeting for several years pursuing our vision of creating an intergenerational cohousing community in the area. In an extremely difficult real estate market, we are excited to finally have a real site. After much searching on our own and working with four different realtors, we had a breakthrough after locating and signing a contract with a local land realtor who knows every vacant piece of land in the county. Within two months we had a contract. Come join us in creating a wonderful place to live.
