Get to know our community „Green Market“
Welcome to “Wohnen im Grünen Markt” (Green Market). We are happy to see you you’re interested in our co-housing project.
We are a vibrant community. Families, individuals, with a variety of different lifestyles, interests and talents. We want to shape parts of our life and our environment together.
Our house has been built in a new, exciting area of Vienna, the „Sonnwendviertel“ close to Hauptbahnhof (main train station). There is a large park, a boulevard with cafés, offices and cultural places. The neighbourhood Sonnwendviertel stands out for its particular city-planning-process and the fact that several co-housing communities have established here.
‘Grüner Markt’ stands for sustainability, creativity and openness for new ideas. Our house has 44 flats and a number of common areas where we spend time together cooking, being creative, playing, celebrating, tending our gardens or to simply hanging out.
We have moved into our building in August 2019, and we enjoy our new way of life very much. All appartements are currently occupied. But if you are interested and want to be on our waiting list for future vacancies, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Let us present some key facts about our housing project:
- We use Sociocracy as our organisational structure (find more information in English on The Sociocracy Group’s site)
- We count on our members to contribute about 10 hours (on average) community work per month (eg. organisation, finance, gardening, cooking, events, etc.)
- The house is owned by the building cooperative „Neues Leben„
