We welcome you to Phoenix Commons
our San Francisco Bay Area 55+ cohousing community.
Our community lives in a modern, environmentally friendly building located in the vibrant Jingletown neighborhood of Oakland, CA and is situated along the beautiful Oakland Estuary.
We often have homes for sale, some with sunset views over the San Francisco Bay.
If you’d like to drop by for our Zoom Open House on Saturday, please RSVP on this page or via the East Bay Cohousing MeetUp group.
We look forward to seeing you!
Here’s what’s happening in the world of cohousing around Oakland, California.

EBCOHO Supporting Member Group Kingfisher Cohousing will have 2-3 homes available for rent later this year.
This is an in-person open house with a real meal & workday, NOT virtual.
We have 2 or 3 apartments turning over in the coming months, ready for new members! A one bedroom apartment will be available for rent in March, and we're anticipating a 2nd one bedroom and a three bedroom sometime in 2022 (the 3 bedroom is definite, but the timing isn't nailed down yet). Come join us at this real, in-person open house, see our cohousing community and tour the apartments.
This is an opportunity to and learn more about this cohousing project, an EBCOHO Supporting Member Group. Please check the group's website for more about the community and the apartment, and more pictures:
The Open House:
Potluck lunch at noon (bring food for yourself if you're not comfortable sharing yet). Bring a mask, but you don't have to wear it when outdoors. Keep in mind that not all of us are vaccinated, so only come if you're comfortable with mixed company. We're fine with you, whatever your vaccine status!
Two apartments will be open for a tour at 1:00 PM. Please stick around in the afternoon to help us work in the garden, and get to know us.
We appreciate EBCOHO RSVP's but drop-ins are welcome too, if you make last-minute plans. If you get a chance, fill out this form on our website : http://www.brookdalecommons.org/finance/ and tell us something about yourself. Call for a private tour if you can't make it on Sunday, or come next month. We almost always host an open house on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
About Our Community:
We are currently a community of five households with the potential to
grow to 9 and to create a common house.
We have thrived in the time of Covid because we could always gather to socialize in our beautiful courtyard. This has been wonderful in this challenging time, keeping us from being isolated, especially those of us who are single and working from home.
Even in this urban space there are lots of places to grow flowers and food. The bees and hummingbirds love our garden, and we're growing tomatoes, figs, cucumbers, squash, string beans and peas.
