Community-Focused Living Spaces

It’s not exactly cohousing, but the apartments described in this article are part of a growing trend of living spaces designed with community in mind — a trend we at Phoenix Commons are proud to be pioneering!


Embracing the Urban Aesthetic

Though abandoned, the 16th Street station is infused with the artistic spirit of #Oakland.

Visiting Venice

Even when halfway around the world, our community members always seem to find themselves in the vicinity of bridges and desserts 🙂

Wishing Tim and Leslie a safe journey on their Tour of Italy!

The remedy to loneliness? Relationships!



The Antidote to Loneliness

The San Francisco Chronicle wrote a great article about our PC community. We think we’ve found the antidote to aging as well. Life is always buzzing around here, keeping us active and excited!
