At this point it's just rooms in a single shared house, as best I can
tell, but the intention is to retrofit the neighborhood:

Just $125 a month including internet? I know folks who pay more than
that just for internet!

Here's the Coho/US directory listing for the community, with some more
background on the vision for community there (don't bother with the
website link, it's not populated yet):

Raines Cohen, Cohousing Coach
  Happy to see San Francisco "Backyard Neighborhood & School"
visioning process is continuing since we helped kick it off last
Summer/Fall -- and a new potential ENTITLED site has turned up, which
some might call "affordable", but only by SF standards

Community Organizer, East Bay Cohousing
  Organizing a field trip to the Pleasant Hill cohousing open house next Sunday
