Amisto Cohousing Society 

Communities in Development

Looking to be part of a thriving cohousing community but don’t know where to start? 

We specialize in identifying the best locations for cohousing and bringing together like-minded individuals to partner with us in creating thriving communities.

Vancouver Cohousing - Completed

Started and guided by us, completed in 2016 with the members' money, passion and time!

Vancouver Cohousing consists of 29 privately owned, fully equipped homes plus 2 rental units, in addition to a large and beautiful common house and outdoor common areas. This vibrant community is located on 33rd Avenue between Victoria Drive and Knight Street.

The homes range from studios to one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units – all with their own kitchens and laundry. The common house has an area of 6,500 sq ft. and includes a community kitchen, dining room, and lounge; activity rooms for children and teens; office areas; two guest rooms; a yoga studio; and rooftop gardens. As well, there are ground-level gardens, workshops, plus a courtyard and play area that encourage year-round social contact. All parking is underground.


Nanaimo North - Lost Lake Cohousing

We purchased the site in the Lost Lake area of Nanaimo on June 30, 2022. We have a design for 29 units, ample common space.

We took this photo after our Getting it Built workshop in 2022.

We aim to start construction in 2024 and move in 2025.
