Our Building - Our New Home

Oak Park Commons cohousing seeks to build an intergenerational co-housing community within a 24 unit-family building in Oak Park, Illinois that features shared common spaces that fosters social interaction among residents, a development strategy that enables moderate, middle and upper income households to become members, and a building that promotes energy conservation practices and environmental sustainability. 

Common House

The common rooms on the fifth floor include a large room designed for dining, celebrations and social events. Its kitchen has two stoves, several sinks, a pantry and multi level counter space for ease of access. Parents can keep an eye on kids playing in the playroom while dining. Others may cluster ’round the west wall fireplace for an informal chat or a movie night. Large windowed doors open up to the terrace and adjoining roof garden. One multi-purpose room invites meeting, reading or other small group gatherings. Another room contains exercise equipment. A guest unit provides overflow space for visitors.

Cohousing Information


Promising to share when purchasing a unit fuels the solidarity that binds us together. Security assured not only by cameras and locks, but the attention and care of resident neighbors. Efficiency gained not only with a high quality building, but meal sharing, bartering and care giving. Sustainability offered not just by energy saving technology, but ride sharing, cycling, and walking.

What is Cohousing?

Cohousing is a residential community of private homes or condos that share a common space intentionally designed to foster social interaction among neighbors and create a safe and friendly environment for kids and seniors alike. Voluntary interaction and interdependency among households at different stages of the life cycle reduces the prospect for social isolation and dependency.

Why Choose Cohousing?

If you like a daily dose of other people beyond your household, cohousing offers just what you need. You meet many of your neighbors before moving in, finding a place in the social community as you settle into your own private dwelling. Participating periodically in social activities and building management work contributes to the welfare of your neighbors as it inspires personal conversation and friendships.
