CREATE A COMMUNITY.
THEN MAKE IT HOME.

In UD+P Cohousing Communities, a mix of thoughtfully designed residences with flowing common spaces allows residents to maintain independence while building strong connections with their neighbors. These aren’t just a collection of homes—residents truly form a community in which social connections and collaboration bring everyone together.

Decision making for cohousing communities is collective. By sharing resources withing the community, residents get more from their living space and build stronger relationships with their neighbors. The community grows the space and the space grows the community.
