We are a group of talented and diverse Pittsburghers including a professor, muralist, data base manager, desktop publisher, cardiac nurse, reiki practitioner, hospice caregiver, architect, accountant, business consultants, ceramicist, psychotherapist, robotics engineer, artists, writers and musicians…so far!
Our vision is for a cooperative, ecologically responsible, and diverse neighborhood of 25 to 30 households, representing a variety of ages, professions, family structures, and ethnic, cultural, and spiritual backgrounds.
Our Concept involves planning, designing, and managing our cohousing community, which will include:
-Energy-efficient, “green” construction homes;
-A balance of private and common spaces;
-A common house available for activities such as fitness, community dinners, movie nights, games, crafts, meetings, and musical events’
-Community space for playground, gardens, and open space for socializing; and
-Roads and parking at the perimeter with central walking paths.
Locations are being researched in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County (close to the city). Site requirements include three acres or more, access to public transportation, and close to shopping, cultural events, and other activities. We have established a relationship with a local developer who has a special interest in cohousing communities, and will initiate a formal working relationship with him once we are ready to purchase a site.
Join us as we continue to develop the vision and reality for this cooperative neighborhood. Plan to live and celebrate life with us in a safe community that shares resources and activities, where neighbors are friends. Support and participate in a community that values ecological responsibility. Become a part of a community of diverse backgrounds, ages, and families.
Orientations, social events, and business meetings are offered monthly. Please visit our website for upcoming dates and more details.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
