COMMUNITY LIVING IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
A six-unit heritage home retrofit and new build in one of Guelph's most desired areas.
Watershed Cohousing is now complete and occupied, situated in the Exhibition Park neighbourhood. The project is Ontario's second urban cohousing community, and a milestone in sustainable lifestyle with low-impact design.
About Watershed Cohousing
Close to Downtown Guelph
Watershed Cohousing is cooperative living in Guelph, Ontario, one of Canada's most livable cities. Located in a picturesque old-city neighbourhood, it's a short 10 minute walk to downtown stores, the Guelph Public Library, The Bookshelf Cinema and the Old Quebec Street Shoppes, the Speed River walking and biking trails and historic Goldie Mill Park.
Steps to Exhibition Park
The Watershed Cohousing site is located a block away from Exhibition park, a cafe, bakery and a short walk to the Youth Music Centre, the River Run Centre for the Performing Arts, pubs, restaurants, churches, farmers market, the civic museum, schools and the Sleeman sports & Event Centre.
Designed by architect J. David McAuley, Watershed is the perfect blend of old and new. Merging a beautiful century house at 360 Woolwich Street with an innovative new build, the design incorporates a host of features that make the project sustainable, with a low environmental footprint, such as rainwater harvesting, roof-mounted solar PV, high R values for external walls and windows, and excellent sound isolation between units.
