ABOUT

We are a group of people interested in developing the first ever cohousing community in Houston, one of the most wonderfully diverse and dynamic cities in the country.

We have purchased land in the East End near Eastwood Park and the light rail. We are building our multi-generation group of  like-minded people, figuring out how to do this in Houston. We're now working on the design phase, while having some fun getting to know each other along the way.

NEWS

Congratulations to the 12 households who joined as LLC Members in the 1st Phase of CoHousing Houston.

We were ordered to "Stay At Home" and still we signed on 12 new members to our Cohousing Houston, LLC organization that was formed in April.

Texas' first cohousing community puts land under contract

A group of people looking to build a cohousing condo development -- a type of housing with a focus on communal living -- has land in the East End under contract.  If developed, the project would likely be the first cohousing community in the state.

The Houston Chronicle picks up on our project and writes a very good introductory article on our project.

Find out about our info sessions leading to Kickoff Workshop Feb 29-Mar 1

We have land under contract and are now organizing information sessions leading up to a 2-day Kickoff workshop Feb 29 - Mar 1 with our cohousing expert consultant, Katie McCamant.

Cohousing Association of the United States

Cohousing communities help prevent social isolation

Groups in Denmark and the U.S. are choosing to live in intentionally intergenerational communities, which emerged to strengthen social ties between aging seniors and their younger counterparts who are balancing work and family. People living in them say the model fosters an interdependent environment and helps everyone feel more comfortable with the process of getting older. NewsHour Weekend's Saskia de Melker reports.
