Philadelphians looking for co-housing eye the Northwest

    The next of co-housing in Philadelphia seems to have found a likely home in the Northwest.

    Interested residents have developed the Wissahickon Eco-Village Co-housing community to begin planning and scouting locations for the green-focused complex.


    Believed to be the first true co-housing development in the city, Wissahickon Eco-Village would feature a community house and kitchen to encourage the close-living residents to spend time together and share the responsibilities.

    At a recent meeting at First United Methodist Church of Germantown, NewsWorks’ Patrick Cobbs learned more about the plans.
