Swan’s Market Cohousing

Swans - 1

Cohousing Community in Oakland, CA

This community faced unique challenges and opportunities, as it grew out of the 1917 Swan’s Market building in the historic Old Oakland neighborhood. Swan’s Market Cohousing is part of an award-winning innovative mixed-used historic-preservation project, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The development includes affordable rental apartments, retail, restaurants, offices and a courtyard alongside the community.

Completed in 2000.

Katie of CoHousing Solutions designed the Common House for Swan’s Market.
