Cohousing Community Coming Downtown

Leaving yoga at Patanjali's Place this week I ran across a flier Durham's new Cohousing Community. I had been hearing talk about this around town but had yet to see anything official. I picked up the flier with a handy map and walked by the new location on my way to enjoy some breakfast at the newly opened Scratch Bakery (yum!)

It's going to be located on Hunt St between Rigsbee and Mangum in what I personally think is a pretty hot area of Durham. The complex will have 24 condos ranging from[masked] sq ft and will all share a common dining room, kitchen, great room, meeting rooms, guest bedrooms, gardens, and rooftop patio.

According to their website, the community is one that:
  • Is supportive of and encourages the well-being of its members
  • Lives a cooperative, sustainable life
  • Maintains and strengthens links to the larger Durham community
  • Fosters a balance between private lives, our cohousing community, and the well-being of the wider community.
They hope to open in 2012 and have been hosting information meetings around town. You can find a lot more great information at their website:

who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."

Silver is the currency of the educated,
Barter is the currency of the working class, And debt is the currency of slaves."
