Only 6 months to go and four units left. Wow. PDX Commons is rockin' the Senior Cohousing thing. Located in one of the country's most liveable cities, PDX Commons is going up in urban Portland, OR with excellent public transit, walkability, neighborhood assets, restaurants, shops, groceries, the PDX Commons Sunnyside neighborhood location makes it perfect for living the last third of our lives.
Already 23 out of the 27 modern condos are spoken for. The commoners have developed a tightly knit community of collaborative, supportive, respectful members in this 55+ community. We party together. We camp. We hike. We bicycle. We do community projects. It's an active bunch of pro-active people. About half of our members are couples. The other half are singles.
We will share about 5000 square feet of common space with off-street parking, a Great House with commercial kitchen, Media Room for group watching of movies, concerts; craft room, exercise space, workshop, living room, library, lounge -- and The Sky Deck our roof-top gardens and party space overlooking the city. We maintain 1000 square feet of retail space whose rent will help pay our HOA fees.
If this sounds like the nurturing community you've been looking for as you downsize and simplify your life, visit our website at PDXCOMMONS.COM. If you are in Portland, we'd be happy to meet with you and tour the site (you'll even get your own hard hat). Be careful though: this group knows how to party.
