Dallas Cohousing's Location: Meet the site & discuss possibilities

  • Aug 5, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We'll tour the proposed location for Dallas Cohousing, and then meet to discuss possibilities:

--Timeline

--Cost

--No. of units/households

--Garden

--Use of common space

--How to move forward

The proposed location is currently called Hipwell Sheet Metal. We have the property under contract and are scheduling inspections ASAP.

The property is 1 block from The Cedars stop on DART rail, 3 blocks from South Side on Lamar, a wonderfully retrofit community offering a small grocery store, coffee shop, and activities for families and adults.

To be determined by engineering inspection: 1) whether the existing structure CAN be retrofit and, if so, 2) cost of retrofit.

    Although in transition and unable to dedicate funds at this time, I'm looking forward to the inspection results.
    I was a very informative meeting with a diverse group of people. Truly, enjoyed seeing everyone and hearing about their unique interests and experiences.

    We'll let you know when the pre-development meeting with the City is scheduled. I'm hoping more folks than just Hugh and me will go, and show the level of interest.

    It was nice meeting in person those who could make it. This property is in in a great location and has a lot of potential if properly developed. I look forward to hearing about the results of the meeting with the city. I think more than anything else that will determine the future of this site and our potential next step(s) as a group.
