Vancouver Cohousing – a multigenerational, sustainable, community in Kensington-Cedar Cottage

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014


Vancouver Cohousing is being built as privately owned, fully equipped homes, plus common areas, in one-, two- and three-storey buildings. The project spans three double-deep lots on 33rd Avenue between Victoria Drive and Knight Street. We plan to move in in the summer of 2015.

The homes will range from studios to one-, two-, three– and four-bedroom units – all with their own kitchens. The main common area will be a clubhouse with a community kitchen and dining room, activity rooms for children and teens, office areas, guest rooms, a yoga studio and a rooftop garden. As well, there will be ground-level gardens, workshops, courtyard and play area to encourage year-round social contact. All parking will be underground.

By working together, Vancouver Cohousing members will be able to share amenities common to a traditional home and reduce the size of their private dwelling.

The group building this project has come together to design housing that is family-supportive, senior-friendly and energy-efficient, and build 31 units.

Three units remain unsold: #115 is a 450 sq. ft. studio at $286,080, #206 is a 1,055 sq. ft. three-bedroom at $622,485, and #308 is a 1,146 sq. ft. three-bedroom at $682,393.
