One of Berkeley's largest cooperative housing projects has been quietly lurking in South Berkeley, supporting the concept of Aging In Community for nearly half a century, but East Bay Cohousing (EBCOHO) Supporting Member Jonathan Pool now lives there and has started reaching out to fill the several units currently available for sale. It is a market-rate (not limited equity) co-op, but we've seen some relatively affordable prices on homes in this great location, walking distance to both downtown Berkeley and the heart of campus, and lots of physical structure (built elements) that support community - the social side is up to you! They've been holding open houses most Sundays from 2-4 to show homes, but tomorrow they've agreed to try an experiment and follow it with a social hour from 4-5 PM so you can get to meet some of the neighbors there; light refreshments will be provided. We're in conversation about holding a number of EBCOHO events in their lovely space.
