I think it will look like converted condos and apartment buildings, and neighborhoods with various features of cohousing. That has already started with many amenities in new condominiums. In addition to exercise rooms, shared office space, and party rooms, they are including things like music practice rooms, yoga and floor exercise rooms, conference rooms, theater-like rooms with very large screens, etc. Luxury condos have much more like smoking rooms, temperature controlled wine lockers, dog playgrounds, billiard rooms, etc. With all these spaces, interaction increases and a cohousing like atmosphere will develop. I found that in condos where I lived there was a culture like cohousing on each floor. I did know my neighbors and some got together regularly to watch TV or play cards. I think this is probably more common in apartments with long term residents, with singles, and with interior hallways. One apartment building I visited had a community room just outside the elevator. In addition to comfortable furniture, residents had various group activities set up on different floors-- one had a perpetual card table with puzzles. It also had a large room used for potlucks, bingo, lectures, dances, etc. And this was at least 20 years ago.
