Once You Go Coho…

#Cohousing is simply a modern form of an ancient tradition: humans living together in tight-knit communities of trust and sharing.

Experienced Entrepreneurs Do Better

This new study shows that a 55 year old is THIRTEEN TIMES as likely to found a successful startup as a 23 year old!

Proving yet again that experience and wisdom are quite valuable, even in the youth-worshipping lanes of Silicon Valley.

Developer-Assisted Cohousing

We respect Chuck and everything he’s done for the cohousing movement, but his way is not the only way. We at Phoenix Commons are a cohousing community with 34 members (and growing!) that was developer assisted — we like this term better than “cohousing lite.”

The assistance was beneficial and saved years of planning in the context of the challenging real estate environment of the San Francisco Bay Area. Long before we broke ground, community members were working to form the community and all that that process entails, including many interior design elements. And now that we are living together in the building, we continue to engage in all elements of intentional living and community-building demands that is required of this lifestyle choice. And our developer and his wife are both residents! #couldntbehappier
