Kaiser-Piedmont Cohousing ONSITE meeting/dinner (N. Oakland)

  • June 21, 2009 · 4:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join other potential members of this move-in-ready affordable North Oakland cohousing community for a private EBCOHO tour of the site and discussion about the property and process, followed by a walk to optional dinner at a nearby Piedmont Avenue restaurant. Learn how we can reduce risks and work together effectively to secure the site and build community, and get a better deal than individual buyers. Get involved now to get the best choice; unit selection will be in order of joining this core group. This is an existing 10-unit move-in-ready renovated apartment building, in a prime location, at an affordable price: even dedicating one unit as a common house, purchase prices would average $250k per unit with seller financing! including closing costs and group development; why rent when you could be living in community in months for perhaps just $25,000 down and around $1,000 a month in mortgage payments. We visited and think the design has great potential as cohousing if a group makes one of the units into a Common House. Our buyers' agent, Mickey Tenenbaum, is working with us to get a group together to secure a "free look" (no risk, fully refundable) short-term option so we can schedule inspections, get estimates for any needed work, and quickly assemble the community. We've got a whole series of visits, briefings, and workshops planned - see the East Bay Cohousing calendar for details. Time is of the essence - there's an independent offer in on one of the units already; if you're at all interested, get involved now. If you can't make this meeting, please RSVP "No" and note your interest in the comments, and get in touch with us. East Bay Cohousing members: click here to get more information about the property, see more photos, and agree to use Mickey Tenenbaum as buyer's agent for collective purchase if buying as part of a community (no added cost to you; he gets paid a commission by the seller). Not yet a member? Join for free. Some basics about the property:


  • Beautifully-renovated 1 & 2 bedroom units

  • All units open to a lush courtyard

  • Stainless steel appliances

  • Hardwood floors

  • WALK TO PIEDMONT AVENUE!


Here's more about the property: Located just a block away from one of the East Bay's most desirable neighborhoods -- Oakland's Piedmont Avenue. Fantastic restaurants, cafés, boutiques, and movie theater are all within walking distance. Great commuter locale! 1 mile to BART; just 10 miles to San Francisco. Howe Street intersects with 40th Street at the corner, so commuting to Emeryville is a breeze! (or to MacArthur BART via the Kaiser shuttle or bus or bike) (the name Kaiser-Piedmont Cohousing is just a placeholder to refer to the location, a block to Piedmont Ave. and Kaiser's Oakland health center, just off MacArthur Blvd. near 38th; not connected with Kaiser Permanente, Kaiser Health or the City of Piedmont)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
