Brooklyn Cohousing Selects a Site


The 10 member households and 17 associate households of the Brooklyn Cohousing group have found a site for their social and housing experiment: Fort Greene's former St. Michael's church property. "When our project is complete, our community will share three buildings surrounding a 7,500-square-foot inner courtyard of gardens, green space and children's play areas," they wrote in an email to interested parties. "In addition, we will share extensive interior common space and share a process of decision making that empowers everyone in the community." This will be a more co-operative co-operative, based on the Danish model of co-housing where folks own individual property as well as some communal spaces. On the right: a potential model of their shared housing vision.
