 Hi -

FYI -- In the U.S., families with children under 18 living at home are a 
"protected class" for most forms of housing.? You can have a housing product 
that is for senior housing, but can't turn away someone based on family status 
from any other form of housing.? And your ads/marketing need to be consistent 
with that.? For more info:

Hello all --

I'm very interested in this discussion both as a professional  
developing cohousing for adults 50+ years and older and as a  
cohousing resident.

My company, Cohousing Collaborative, is close to nailing down a site  
in the Washington, DC area which we will develop as "Senior"  
cohousing.   We are targeting and attracting adults starting around  
50 yrs old (which appears to be the same age as AARP starts sending  
membership notices!)

However ... there's nothing magic about the age "50."

Why not cohousing for adults of all ages?

Best --
