No, the project was never built. And they had a really sweet little site with a view of the ocean. When I was living at Doyle St. Cohousing, I was invited to do a little presentation at one of their marketing/orientation meetings. The prospective members who came to the meeting--and there were quite a few, it turns out, had been attracted solely by the projected low cost of the units, and were completely uninterested in cohousing. The Habitat people had purchased the site and were enthusiastic about cohousing, but they just couldn't make it fly. I can't help but be reminded that when we were "recruiting" people for Old Oakland Cohousing in a public venue--a farmer's market--many of the people who stopped by began and ended their conversations with us with the question, "How much for a two bedroom?" Then there are those who "love the concept," and keep, "loving the concept," sometimes for many years.....but that's another story. Joani Blank finally living happily at Old Oakland Cohousing at Swan's Market, aka as OOCoHo. There is a there here in Oakland, California, Gertrude Stein notwithstanding.
