Ravens Crossing Cohousing

RAVENS CROSSING - our new name for Saanich Peninsula Cohousing.

Ravens are industrious, smart birds you find all around the Peninsula. In Coast Salish stories they are portrayed as both clever and mischievous - and we liked that! 

We are a diverse group of independent households, that have worked together effectively and efficiently (…and with care and humour) over the past several months who are now about to dive into a site search! We are guided by the expert team of professionals at Cohousing Development Consulting and supported by the cohousing communities around us. 

We enthusiastically look forward to finding a site and developing our own multi-generational cohousing community in Brentwood Bay or Sidney within a ten-minute walk of the amenities and green spaces we need to live a more sustainable lifestyle. 

We envision a community of introverts and extroverts in all ages and stages of life who value privacy and connection within a simpler, healthier, and more energy-efficient environment, in a place primarily of compact, creatively-designed bright apartments with extensive common facilities to augment our private dwellings and support us to have more connection with our neighbours. We hope to be ready to move into our community of 25-30 new homes by 2020. 

You’re invited to follow our progress by signing up to our email list expect an email every month or two). We’ll let you know when our group finds a site, when our membership is open, and what the Ravens are doing!

 

Vision

Future Ravens Crossing Cohousing homeowners are developing a strata-titled community with a difference!

New members are invited to participate as we work alongside professionals to design and develop our future homes. We envision a community primarily of compact, creatively-designed bright apartments with extensive common facilities to augment our private dwellings and support us to have more connection with our neighbours.

We want to locate in Brentwood Bay or Sidney, within a ten-minute walk of the amenities and green spaces we need to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

We welcome introverts and extroverts in all ages and stages of life who value privacy and connection within a simpler, healthier, and more energy-efficient environment.
