Ravens Crossing Cohousing
Ravens are industrious, smart birds you find all around the Saanich 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 two years to select a site and design our community. Located in the wonderful waterfront town of Sidney, British Columbia, the 26,000 sq. ft planned neighbourhood of 34 homes is a 5-minute walk to the ample amenities Sidney offers, a 10-minute walk to the ocean front, close to transit and green spaces, and a skip and a jump from Sidney Elementary School.
Building Community with Cohousing
In Ravens Crossing 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. As a community we’ve worked together to select a site that meets our vision and have designed a place 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 by late 2020.
