2019:        $0.26 per sq ft
2020:        $0.26 per sq ft
2021:        $0.28 per sq ft

*Annie,*
I can't be sure how the two communities below calculated the $/sq ft.  For
PDX Commons, I have divided the annual budget raised via Homeowner Fees by
the total square footage of our built and unbuilt elements --- so private
units + all common areas (rooftop solar panel square footage, HVAC
condenser square footage,landscaping, bike racks, etc included).  Then I
divided by 12 for a monthly amount.

I can re-calculate if other assumptions about the computation are provided.

BEWARE of "apple to oranges" comparisons ...  right now, PDX Commons is a
mighty fine lookin' apple!
