tomo house

OUV has partnered with innovative developer Tomo Spaces to build a new cohousing model for Vancouver. 

Tomo stands for "together more," a name that reflects their belief that buildings should be designed to support the relationships of people who live in them.  

Our new home, Tomo House, is at 5811 Main Street. Read all about it in this article in the Courier.

our community

"Our Urban Village is a multigenerational co-housing community that fosters caring and collaborative relationships. We value inclusivity, diversity and living lightly on the planet in a building designed to encourage community interactions. We value our walkable, amenity rich and vibrant Vancouver neighbourhood."

  • We hope 30-40% of us are young families 
  • We've had various careers: a teacher, business owner, urban planner, a writer.
  • We all own bikes, ride regularly and are committed to car-sharing.
  • We volunteer in social, environmental and cultural causes.
  • We're  looking forward to breaking bread together in our new home
