University City, MO-- November 1, 2002 - Village in the City announced that it has acquired property from the City of University City located at the southwest corner of Vernon and Westgate Avenues. A 20-unit apartment-style condominium building will be designed as a cohousing community on the one-half acre site. Construction will begin in 2003, with occupancy in early 2004. Village in the City is a diverse group of local residents, open to new participants, who will create a family-friendly, self-managed condominium community that consists of private individual apartments as well as extensive common spaces. Eco Housing Corporation, chosen for their experience in cohousing, will be the developer. The group will generate an architectural design based on the cohousing model, a form of collaborative housing with a strong sense of community. Typical features of cohousing include extensive common space, resident management, and design input. With over sixty cohousing communities nationally, this form of housing is an emerging trend in home building. Each residence will be conventionally financed and privately-owned. Members of Village in the City have the support of the neighborhood association, U-City East and the Ward 2 Councilmember, Shelley Welsch, who states, "Village in the City will be another asset for the already vibrant urban community of Parkview Gardens. Families will be able to take advantage of a safe place to live with many recreational and educational resources nearby."
