Urban Green Cohousing
We are an inclusive, intentional community committed to knowing and supporting our neighbours and to contributing to environmental and social sustainability in Edmonton’s urban core. We live in the heart of Old Strathcona within walking distance of public transit, library, farmers’ market, restaurants, theatre, hospital, and our wonderful river valley.
Our Urban Green home is a net-zero-carbon concrete and steel building. Solar panels on two of our three roofs offset some of the cost of energy for our fossil-fuel-free building. Four-storeys on the west side step down into the neighbourhood to our ground-level one-storey common area on the east. We have a rooftop patio accessed from a party room on the fourth floor. Our Common House on the main floor at the east end of the building houses the great room, kitchen, kids’ playroom, book nook, coat room and community office. Our dining room exit opens onto a patio on the east side of our well-treed yard.
We occupied our building in July and August of 2023. At present all our suites are spoken for. Urban Green hosts an information session and tour every spring and fall for people who wish to be added to our waitlist. Once a date is confirmed, details about upcoming Information Sessions are posted on the “Events” page of our website.
