This 20 unit Co-Housing project is designed for a diverse community within the Central District. A mixed income community, it will also accommodate 5 affordable housing units secured by Homestead Community Housing. Designed for a 16,000 sf L-3 lot, the project housing units surround a secure green courtyard, with a central common house in the middle. With community kitchen and dining, the common house also houses a library and meeting area. The project was designed with sustainable principles in mind – a common green roof acts as an amenity for the project, and solar water panels act as sun screening devices. Storm water will be harvested to help create water features throughout the project.
