Join our community – units are available!

We are a multigenerational cohousing 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 bike-able, amenity rich Vancouver neighbourhood.

Cohousing is an intentional community of private units oriented around shared space. Each unit has all the features of a stand-alone living unit – like a standard condo – but neighbours collaboratively manage community activities and shared spaces, including shared meals, events, and other gatherings. In addition, our building has been designed to encourage community and social development.

OUV has partnered with innovative developer Tomo Spaces to build a new cohousing model for Vancouver called “cohousing lite.” The 3-storey low-rise building with 12 strata-titled units, ranging from studios to 3-bedrooms is expected to break ground in the Spring of 2020 and move in late 2021.

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, and we plan to break ground in early 2020.
