Things are moving quickly at Bay State Cohousing (BSC)! Since our 2020 groundbreaking for construction on our three-story, 30-unit building, crews have done foundation and underground work, iron work and framing/roofing, and are now working on the electrical and plumbing systems, drywall and the exterior siding. This puts us on a path for move-in in early 2022. All 30 of our units have been pre-sold to those who have gone through the membership process to become equity members.
All units are currently pre-sold. However units will become available periodically, so please email us at BayStateCommons@gmail.com to sign up for our interest list to be in the know when a new unit becomes available. Additionally, if you want to learn more about cohousing and BSC, please join us at our meetings (first and third Tuesdays of each month; see listings at Meetup or Facebook.)
In addition to private units, the property will have 5,000 square feet of expanded common spaces, including a meeting & work room, entertainment room, wood shop, yoga/workout studio, kids’ play room, arts room, music room, social room/pub, great room and large common kitchen and dining area for occasional shared meals. There are outdoor decks on each floor, and a courtyard with green space that is for gardening and other outdoor activities. The energy-efficient building will mean low utility prices for residents, while the presence of 45 or so friends as neighbors means there will be a lot of sharing of tools, appliances and all sorts of things. So each household doesn’t have to purchase its own circular saw, deluxe mixer or extra-large pot that you use once a year.
