"Sonora Cohousing is Arizona's first cohousing development, located on a 4.7-acre infill parcel in Tucson. Except for a circa-1940s adobe bungalow—which was converted into a cohousing residence—the parcel was vacant, and wedged between an apartment complex and predominantly 1950s-era homes.

Sonora is comprised of nearly 100 residents living in 36 attached townhomes, predominantly placed in groups of three and four units along lushly landscaped placitas to take advantage of solar orientation."
