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.
We moved in on March 1, 2016. The homes range from studios to one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units – all with their own kitchens. 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.
By working together, Vancouver Cohousing members are able to share amenities common to a traditional home and reduce the size of their private dwelling.
The housing is inclusive,family-supportive, senior-friendly and energy-efficient.
