Clearly, developer driven cohousing CAN work. Given the right circumstances.

Muir Commons was developer driven, as are all of Wonderland's projects.

One of the interesting dynamics of developer driven community is when the people actually get into their homes, will they have the commitment and
bonds to be a community?  Community is not made by a building, it is a
deliberate relationship that you enter into willingly and with purpose. Without that relationship, all the common elements in the world will not make a community happen. There are not a lot of developer driven communities yet, so it will be interesting to evaluate them in say 5 years after people move in, and see what happened. Intention is really important, and I have wondered how a developer would create intention if faced with a conflict between intention and sales. If sales are lagging, would the developer hold
on to the intention, or would they bale.
