Mosaic Commons includes 34 townhouses and flats, ranging from 1 to 4 bedrooms in size.
Our guiding principles include a commitment to creating a supportive, diverse community; affordability; and environmental consciousness. Our homes are superinsulated, meet many LEED standards, and are built with as many low-toxicity sustainable materials as possible.
We’re committed to open, green space. Almost 30 acres of our land is preserved as conservation land. Clustered duplex and triplex buildings leave most of our remaining 35 acres as open space.
Our community includes ages ranging from 1 to 73; people of many spiritual and ethnic backgrounds; gay, straight and bisexual members; singles, couples and families.
