PDX Commons Senior Cohousing


PDX Commons is a 55+ community of adventurous adults who choose to explore aging together in a vibrant urban space, with respect, compassion, laughter, and friendship. Our four-story building in Portland, OR, affectionately referred to by its airport code, PDX, combines individual private condominiums, with lots of shared space for socializing, community meals, gatherings of many kinds, and places to meet for our co-housing community business. We share a common ethic of inclusion, and cooperation for the greater good.

Our beautiful home has easy access to public transit, parks, shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. We practice sustainable living and are committed to decreasing our footprint on the planet.

A collaborative community of supportive friends


We are 35 adults ranging in age from our 60s to our 80s. About half of our households consist of couples and the other half singles. While we are an adult community, it’s common to see adult children and grandchildren visiting our homes.

We were a community before we were a building. Together we worked with a professional development team and general contractor to design and construct our common home. We are now the owners of this building, and we run the community ourselves. Decisions are made using a consensus model. This allows every voice to be heard, valued and appreciated.
