Corvallis Cohousing

This cohousing community, called “Coho”, was developed in partnership between local Corvallis residents and Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services. Located on a 6 acre parcel, Coho is a community of 34 homes with a large common house where residents share meals on a regular basis and meet to plan, play and party. This mixed income community includes 8 homes for low or moderate buyers including one 4-BR unit for residents with developmental disabilities. Financing included funds from Oregon Housing and Community Services, subsidized land from Benton County, HOME funds from Corvallis, and Neighborworks. Construction was completed in late 2007 and all units sold within 2 months.
