We are building a multigenerational cohousing community along the Rio Grande River in Albuquerque, NM. We’re breaking ground in Fall 2022 on 27 beautiful, energy-efficient homes clustered around a shared open space, with a fully equipped common house and a range of community amenities. Just 10 homes are still available in our community, with prices ranging from $250,000 to $600,000.
Our land is on a quiet road with lots of families and kids. The neighborhood’s agricultural roots give it a rural feel, but the center of town is just a 3-minute drive away. Our community plans include play areas for kids, a shared farming area, a year-round greenhouse, an orchard, a workshop and electric vehicle charging.
We are diverse in age, background and identity, representing a mix of families with children, multigenerational families, couples and singles. We range in age from 0 to 79, and there are 12 kids in our community so far. We have created a fun, caring culture among our group, regularly getting together for meals, camping trips and play dates by the river, in addition to collaborating on our community plans and supporting one another through pandemic related stressors and life’s ups and downs.
In Albuquerque, there’s lots to keep us busy, from museums and galleries to nationally recognized wineries and breweries. With 310 sunny days per year, you can often find us outside—hiking, biking or skiing, or exploring the mountains, parks and historic sites all around the region. The Rio Grande that flows through the city center is a playground for kayakers, and miles of walking and cycling trails wind through its wooded banks.
Reach out to us or join an upcoming info session to learn more about becoming a part of our community!
