About Co-housing

Our community provides all that’s rich about day-to-day life. Your home is large enough for your comfort and connected enough to allow community interactions. We have our privacy, but we are not isolated. To learn what co-housing means to us.

Our flats

As we age, many of us face becoming isolated in a home that’s too large and expensive to maintain. Imagine instead, living in an eco-friendly community with like-minded neighbours. Our 22 new flats range from 2 to 3.5 Zimmer. To find out more about the location, cost and availability of our flats

Getting to know each other is an important part of building our community. Organized events for both members and friends happen about once a month.
