Having lived in a number of condos and having friends who lived in condos, I 
find that cohousers under estimate HOAs for developing relationships between 
residents. Obviously it isn’t cohousing and isn’t a conscious attempt to create 
shared cultural expectations but strong relationships develop under all kinds 
of HOAs. 

Not sure what I would think of as a fail. Refusing to use the name “cohousing”?

I think people have posted lists in the past but it has been a long time. Maybe 
it would be a good exercise now.
