The Co-Housing Trend


Historically, Charlotte has been a city of suburban neighborhoods. In recent years, a more urban profile has developed with apartments and condominiums cropping up like weeds and now, something new is coming to town: Co-housing. These communities have individual homes but also extensive shared open spaces, playgrounds, courtyards and a common house. Co-housing is about design and a community culture state of mind.
