Community-Focused Housing Development in Manchester













Richmond Cohousing has partnered with Miller & Associates to build Richmond’s first community-focused “cohousing” development with move-in expected by the end of 2019. Located in Manchester, the four-story, 19-unit condo building of one-, two- and three-bedroom units is intentionally designed to encourage neighborly interaction and cooperation. This will be one of nearly 150 cohousing communities in the U.S., with five in Virginia.

       Central to the building’s design is a large common area for both spontaneous and planned community activities, including a kitchen, dining/meeting area and kids’ playroom. The group anticipates multiple weekly shared meals, a collaborative rooftop garden and a more engaging decision-making model than traditional homeowners’ or condo associations. While shared space is emphasized, privacy is still a central component, as all units will be individually owned.

       Richmond Cohousing has been searching for a site to build an intentional community for over six years, and is actively seeking new members for the community. Commitments from prospective buyers are encouraged by December.
