Hi all, Here at Arboretum Cohousing in Madison, Wisconsin, we're pretty excited at being on the verge of having a signed offer to purchase our site. From then, we will have a limited amount of time to do marketing, design, and all the rest of the development work. I'm hoping this group can help us and our architect with a question. I spent some time searching for relevant posts (including using the terms in this subject heading and randomly skimming the archives), and didn't find much. Here's our dilemna: we currently have 11 active 'equity' members, and are planning for 40 units. We did a survey, and the vast majority (9-10) want a two bedroom unit. What we need help deciding is how to extrapolate that to decide the unit distribution for our 40 units, since it probably won't be a linear extrapolation (i.e. we don't plan on having 36 two bedroom units) We realize that we can design the distribution to target certain demographics: more larger units = more families, studios target more of the edges. However, we want to find a mix that will accomodate as many different demographics as possible, yet still help us sell all our units. We're also doing research into the local condo market, but we especially would like to know how other coho groups figured this out. If you are willing to share your stories, wonderful. If you know of other threads or documents that might help, and can give me leads to find them, great. Thanks so much. In community, Carey Dachik __________________________________ Yahoo!
