Co-housing embodies the Danish concept of a community-centered life-style in which a group of owners contribute to the project’s design process and help create an environment suited to their collective needs. Co-housing owners have ongoing contact through shared activities, communally prepared dinners and participatory governance.
Phoenix has constructed three communities near Ann Arbor’s Sister Lakes. Touchstone consists of 42 units.
The project is located on twelve acres and consists of two, three and four bedroom condos grouped in buildings of 4–6 units, which are clustered together around courtyards with walkways, owner-tended gardens and trails. Roads and parking are located on the perimeter of the development creating a people-focused neighborhood.
