Washington Village

Washington Village

Washington Village is being developed as a cohousing based pocket neighborhood. It is one of the first LEED ND projects exemplary for neighborhood sustainability due not only to its energy efficiency features, but also its preservation and reuse of the Historic Washington School Building and the community’s commitment to social and economic sustainability and diversity. It is a cohousing development with 36 mixed housing unit types including single family, detached homes, duplexes, condos, carriage homes, office space and approximately 7,500 square feet of shared common areas. Ten of the units are in the City of Boulder deed restricted permanently affordable programs and the common facilities are the very heart of a cohousing community. They provide places for community activities such as common dinners, and numerous other organized formal and informal activities. Washington Village facilities include a common house with indoor and outdoor dining areas, a fireside lounge, an art studio, a library, a woodshop and bike repair shop, and more. This project is designed to achieve a smarter ecological footprint in a collaborative and diverse small neighborhood community.
