Looking for a community-driven place to call home? Come visit us at the Riley Park Farmers' Market and learn about East Van Cohousing! We will be there from 10am-2pm at Riley Park, 50 E 30th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5V 2V1
We're excited to announce an upcoming 35 unit cohousing project at 2732-2758 Duke St in Vancouver, near Kingsway and 33rd. East Van Cohousing is an all-ages community that welcomes people who share our like-minded view on the importance of community and sustainability.
Our project is unique because it's owner-designed - future residents will design the homes and make decisions together through workshops and meetings using consensus-based processes. Our site design workshop is happening on May 13th and 14th, followed by a common house design workshop on June 17th and 18th, and a private home design workshop on July 29th and 30th.
Our cohousing design emphasizes interactions between neighbours to build relationships, with all units facing a community street. Each private home will be self-contained to allow for independent living and privacy, with its own kitchen, laundry, and indoor and outdoor spaces.
We'll also have a shared "Common House" for socializing and community activities, including a large dining room, kitchen, playroom, guest room(s), and more that the group determines.
Our site is in the beautiful Norquay area of Vancouver, just a 10-minute walk to 29th Ave. Skytrain and across the street from Norquay park. John Norquay Elementary and Windermere Secondary Schools are also nearby.
The estimated cost of units at East Van Cohousing will be in the range of $1100 per square foot, similar to other condos in the area. To become a member, the minimum investment is $50K. Investments are recorded as shares in East Van Cohousing Company, which will own the land. Discounts for early investments are available.
Join us for optional shared meals, celebrations, and other events that create a village-like atmosphere that is friendly and welcoming.
