A very inspiring article in the NYT on the renovation of Archer Courts in Chicago. Architects took a horrible project filled with crime and rats and turned it into an award-winning building and a happy community with NO residents being displaced. They created community rooms that sound very much like commonhouses and did it all with foundation and public money. The renovation was done by Anthony Fusco and Daniel Burke, lawyers who specialize in "civic miracles" like saving and renovating low and moderate income housing. This is probably the best way to create cohousing communities for low and moderate income households. In fact this project now includes mixed income households. http://www.nytimes.com/2003/01/02/garden/02ARCH.html You may have to register to read the article but registration is free. The article is "Out of the Ashes, Cinderella" by Gwenda Blair.
