Altair EcoVillage

Kimberton, Pennsylvania

Altair currently consists of seven families who have invested in the project, eight other member families. (up to House #18 committed on paper). We follow the traditional Cohousing model, but are more of an EcoVillage. We are looking to build 29 town houses and duplexes, ranging in size from one- to four-bedroom units. We have purchased an 8 acre site in Kimberton village and have purchased homes adjacent to the open land to ensure we have access. The Township is supporting an Overlay Ordinance that will allow us to build a sustainable ecovillage. We are looking to submit our site plan for approval in July, and hope to break ground Spring of 2022.
We generally hold two meetings a month – a Social (usually fourth Sunday) and a Members business meeting (usually third Sunday). We are soliciting new members and friends to help with the pre-approval costs. Members intending to live in the EcoVillage can invest as a Managing Member, their funds capitalized and earning a modest ROI, applied toward the cost of their home.
Our goal is to build Passive Houses with close to net-zero energy heating and cooling. We will also use the Green Building Council’s SITES v2 Guidelines for ecological low-impact development.
We anticipate having a Getting-it-Built workshop April 18th, and design retreats for the site, Common House, and housing designs in May and June. We have contacted banks and foundations to help with the funding.
We will be an age-restricted community. We have an experienced developer, a land planner, and an architect, and will soon contract with a Passive House builder, and mechanical/electrical engineer, and a construction manager. We have a PA registered non-profit to create a funding stream to support various initiatives (ecology, electric cars, etc.)
At the moment, we need a solid group of investors, and will be taking reservations as soon as the Ordinance is passed. You can visit our website or contact us by email or phone.
