IMAGINE … being a part of bringing this new possibility to life …
EcoHousing Corporation, developer of Takoma Village in Washington, DC and Eastern Village, in Silver Spring, Maryland is proposing a new cohousing community on a site owned by The City of Takoma Park, Maryland.
The City is currently soliciting proposals for developing the surface parking lot located to the west of the Takoma Park-Silver Spring Coop.
EcoHousing, one of several developers submitting proposals for the site, envisions a mixed-use development consisting of commercial/retail on the ground floor with 36-40 units of cohousing on the 3rd and 4th floors. As with its first two cohousing communities, the building will be energy-efficient, green, and sustainable. The site is walkable to the Takoma Red Line metro along with frequent Ride-On bus service. And, of course, the biggest draw: it’s cohousing in funky, “Azalea City” Takoma Park!
The developers, Don Tucker and Bruce Levin, are interested in meeting you and finding out if there is a viable contingent of folks who want to live in cohousing at this location.
