We love this article for obvious reasons (with one minor correction: our actual address is in Oakland, although most of our walkable entertainment and dining destinations are in downtown Alameda just across the bridge!)

Phoenix Commons residents were thoroughly entertained by a fabulous play-reading performance of “The Importance of Being Earnest” by an amazing group of PC actors!
Phoenix Commons is a cohousing community on the Oakland waterfront, located at 340 29th Avenue. We are right off the Park Street bridge directly across from Alameda.
