Welcome to Duwamish Cohousing, located in West Seattle. We are an active cohousing community of 23 residential condos with common grounds and facilities, participatory governance, plenty of community activities, and diversity. Living in a pocket of nature, our units face the community pathway and are surrounded by lush grounds to foster community and connection to the natural world.
We are in an exciting time as our community has been through a strong revitalization that continues to grow. We are always looking for new energy to join our community and make a home here. Our residents and families come together for social events, to manage the community, and to maintain the common elements. We make decisions based on a consensus model, and often use the open space approach to encourage our members to participate in the ways that speak to them.
Duwamish Cohousing was designed with environmental consciousness. Our community is surrounded by trees and native vegetation, including nurturing the lower wetland area. Throughout our community you will find food gardens and edible landscaping, with children snatching ripe berries in the summer. Our units utilize radiant floor heating for effectiveness and energy savings. And we utilize responsible rainwater management, including permiable paving and ecological runoff streams.
