Richmond Cohousing is working with seasoned Richmond development firm Robin Miller & Associates to create a four-story, 19-unit condo project to 901 Porter St. in Manchester.
The building will have privately owned condos ranging from one to three-bedrooms, each with a full kitchen. Staying true to the mission of cohousing, the building’s design will be centered on a common area that includes a kitchen, dining and meeting area, as well as a play area for children. The space can be utilized for planned and spontaneous gatherings and interactions.
“We have a shared intention to live collaboratively and you do that through building design,” said Karl Zweerink, Richmond Cohousing member. “The fact that the common area will be accessible through the entrance to the building will encourage interaction between residents and reduce the isolation a lot of living arrangements can create.”
