Durham Central Park Cohousing Community


Envisioning a new model of urban neighborhood


Durham Central Park Cohousing Community is a group of individuals, couples and families living in an urban, intentional community in downtown Durham, North Carolina. Known as Durham Coho, we opened late summer 2014, and currently enjoy 39 members, including one teenager. We are located within easy walking distance of the Farmers' Market, the library, the YMCA, restaurants, shops, parks, performing arts center, and theaters, and we’re only a couple of miles (via the free Bull City Connector) from Duke University and its famous Medical Center.

Nearly half of Durham Coho provides shared community spaces for small and large group gathering, occasional shared meals, music, laundry, gardens and a roof-top terrace.  Twenty four private condominiums ranging in size from 850 square feet to 1,700 square feet provide indoor living space and balconies large enough for dining with friends.

Located within a once industrial part of downtown, our building provides a southern exposure cityscape, and opportunities to be part of a re-emerging neighborhood that has received national attention. Budget driven, Durham Coho is a simple form clad in metal siding with balconies, sun shades and an entry canopy added to provide a play of light and shadow that change throughout the day and seasons.

As cool as our building is, our community of members is what makes Durham Coho truly special.

All of our units are occupied. Please contact us if you'd like to be added to our mailing list.
