Charlotte Cohousing is a development of a tight knit community located in Charlotte, NC. The community is situated on 25 acres only a few miles from the center of Charlotte. The community will be arranged in a cohousing style; Cohousing is a type of collaborative housing in which residents actively participate in the design and operation of their own neighborhoods.
Cohousing residents are consciously committed to living as a community. The physical design encourages both social contact and individual space. Private homes contain all the features of conventional homes, but residents also have access to extensive common facilities such as open space, courtyards, a playground and a common house.
This cohousing community will be designed as homes clustered around a central courtyard. Each person owns their own home and the private residence is setup just like a traditional home. We expect that there will be between 30 and 60 homes/units built. Because of the layout of the community, there are many opportunities for casual meetings between neighbors, as well as for deliberate gatherings such as celebrations, clubs, community meals, tutoring, picnics and business meetings.
All are welcome to join, even those who are just interested or want to know more.
