A Cohousing Condominium Community for 55+ on the Oakland Waterfront

Phoenix Commons is the Bay Areas first senior cohousing community.  Over half of the homes have sold and we are currently accepting deposits for the remaining condominiums.  Phoenix Commons was developed by Elder Village Development, LLC.  Their mission, like all of AEC Living, is to support the independence and enhance the quality of life of older adults.

What is a Cohousing Community?

It is a community that offers the members of the development the unique opportunity to create a community together; one that reflects their values, needs, and aspirations for this chapter of life.  There are many benefits derived from the caring relationships, common sense of purpose, and the mutual support that develops between a close knit community of peers.
