We are an urban cohousing community in the heart of Atlanta with 12 townhouses and a common house on one acre. We have common dinners twice a week for our community members and their guests. Our common meals are vegetarian and we often have a vegan option, but only half our members eat vegetarian in their own homes. The architecture is beautiful and the gardens are lush, lending a European-village feeling to our small site. Our small size makes for an intimate group. We recycle, we compost, and we have a small organic garden. We make decisions by consensus. Additionally, we are a queer-affirming and anti-racist community, and many of our members engage in political and social activism.
The Lake Claire Cohousing community is located in the Lake Claire neighborhood of Atlanta, just west of Decatur, just east of Candler Park and Little Five Points, and a few miles south of Emory University. We’re only about a ten-minute walk from MARTA, Atlanta’s rapid-transit system, on which you can easily travel to downtown Atlanta, Decatur, and the airport. We are also next door to the Lake Claire Community Land Trust, a sort of homemade neighborhood park which features a gazebo, a sandbox, a water garden, a fire circle, a sweat lodge, and even a stage for performances.
Lake Claire Cohousing was the first cohousing community built in Georgia and one of the first in the Southeast. (In the Atlanta area, we have since been joined by the East Lake Commons in south Decatur)
