We are a group of independent households developing a beautiful property on Sooke Harbour that enjoys expansive water and mountain views with amenities a quick walk away in the village core. Our mission is to establish a vibrant community of architecturally innovative, environmentally sound, strata-titled condos with extensive common facilities that encourage neighbourly interaction while respecting individual autonomy and privacy—an environment that will enrich our lives now and well into our later years, supporting each other to remain independent as we grow in creative community. We have applied for the necessary re-zoning for a single, low-rise (maximum 6 stories) apartment-style building with 32 fully independent strata-titled units. As of May 2017, we have 13 equity members and 2 associate member households. Regularly scheduled workshops and information meetings are available for anyone interested in our project; check our website for more information. Margaret Critchlow’s weekend workshop Is Cohousing for You? is a requirement for equity membership in the project.

Harbourside’s waterfront location in downtown Sooke includes a beautiful resort building that will be adapted to reuse as a Common House, and a commercial wharf offering moorage to residents’ boats. Our mandate is to build a neighbourhood of strata-titled housing for seniors that is affordable, environmentally friendly, and socially/culturally supportive, allowing people to flourish through mutual support as they age in place and in community.
