We the members of the Mountain View Cohousing Community (MVCC) have created and are living as neighbors in a cohousing community at 445 Calderon Avenue in Mountain View, California.

Our goal has been to create and live in a new “old-fashioned” neighborhood of upscale, energy-efficient condominiums and common facilities. The design of the property and the buildings support our wish to live in a collaborative environment. MVCC is within easy walkable distance of our lively downtown, with its restaurants, library, performing arts center, and more.

Breaking bread together and working together to accomplish our shared goals is a great way to get to know our neighbors at a deeper level and develop camaraderie. Common meals are held twice a week with a TGIF each Friday. Attendance is optional, although we have agreed that all will benefit if we all participate as time allows in meal preparation as well as attendance at meals. We are fully self-governing — see our FAQ page for more information on meals and the teams that handle the many aspects of living here at MVCC.
