Our Urban Village, a Vancouver Cohousing Community

The happier missing middle

Written By Emma Avery

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to develop your own multi-unit housing? How about living in a social community where you commit to making decisions together, sharing communal meals, and supporting your neighbours?

On May 30, Happy Cities hosted a webinar with the project team and community behind Our Urban Village—Vancouver’s newest cohousing community—to explore the answers to some of these questions.

Watch the discussion below with Leslie Shieh (Tomo Spaces), Marianne Amodio, (MA+HG Architects), Rodrigo Alba and Kathy Sayers (Our Urban Village), and Madeleine Hebert and Emma Avery (Happy Cities) to hear about the community’s experiences developing the building, forming connections, and sharing a home together.
