you’re invited to join us & launch our brand new community, Society 62!

OpenDoor specializes in coliving. For over eight years, we have been launching, living in, and loving building human connection by living better, together.

Society 62 is a brand-new community, custom designed for shared living. Each of the three levels has its own shared kitchen and living area, all of which are tastefully furnished and fully equipped. Launching on May 1st, 2022, we are currently accepting interest forms for founding residents who have a passion for community and want to be involved in the formative stage!

What does building a brand new coliving community as a Founding Resident mean for you? 

This means you are interested in building a brand new community. As one of the Founding Members of the space, you will collaborate with us in building an authentic, collaborative, and thriving culture at Society 62. Join us through team-building, skill-building, and setting up systems for community. Most importantly, you are collaborative, passionate, inclusive, and fun!

Ongoing Facilitation & Distribution of Leadership:

With the basic leasing process & systems in the building set, each member moves on to the higher-order challenge of actualizing Society 62’s vision for the duration of your 12 month lease. All founding members continue to serve as leaders through this period of cultural maturation, and will see the community through self actualization & maturity.

The Opportunity

We’re excited to talk to folks who are interested in being a part of launching a brand new community. Whether you’ve always dreamed of community living, or have been living in a shared house for 5 years, we’d love to hear from folks who are excited at the prospect of having a hand in launching a new space! OpenDoor specializes in Coliving and we love working with early residents to gather together into a cohesive group, make decisions together, work to share resources, and navigate the process of building bonds!

Ideally, you will be passionate about being a founding resident. A plus if you have the capacity and skills to act as a liaison to OpenDoor! 

  • We support you with certified coaches, facilitators, and a body of resources that has been built over a decade in sixteen properties.
  • OpenDoor will hold a strong container for launching a successful and fulfilling community.
  • Our Founding Residents will be skillful and excited to lead a group of rad and passionate  humans.
  • Most importantly, each person will lead with their heart.

By using time-tested frameworks & processes for launching new co-living communities, you will bring it to life with your unique passion, purpose, and vision.

We empower all of our Members to embody OpenDoor’s Keys to Success in community building:

  • Having a Spirit of Generosity :gift:
  • Generosity is the golden rule of coliving (“do unto others,” as they say) that breeds a broader culture of reciprocity in our homes.
  • Adopting a Growth Mindset :brain:
  • Living in a community is not all rainbows and butterflies. Each of us comes as the beautifully, imperfect humans that we are. Use coliving to expand your sense of empathy, and you acknowledge that you make mistakes and learning from them.
  • Treating Everything as a Prototype :hammer_and_wrench:
  • When things are understood to be a prototype and not the “final decision for all of time,” it can take some of the weight off the decision and keep things flowing . Something doesn’t need to be 100% fool-proof before getting it rolling.
  • Assuming Good Intent :purple_heart:
  • A powerful approach we’ve seen work wonders is to always “assume good intent.” This is a generous move. Let’s say someone does or says something that upsets you – instead of reacting, extend to them the benefit of the doubt.
  • Building Community Around the Dinner Table :yum:
  • Breaking bread together is an ancient and time-honored way that we humans build community. It is this ritual of gathering around food that creates opportunity for regular conversation and deeper relationships.

welcome to society 62

The Layout

This project consists of three stories, each of which is designed to be a self-contained community household. Each floor has a fully equipped chef’s kitchen, and open plan living space with ample dining and plenty of living space. Everyone has a private bedroom, and many beds have private baths. The first floor has eleven bedrooms, the second floor has twelve bedrooms, and the top floor has six lofted bedrooms.

Interior Design

Each of the three flats is being thoughtfully furnished- couches, rugs, art, plants, chairs, as well as a fully equipped  kitchen down to silverware, bowls, plates, cups, pots and pans. We’re incorporating 8 years of experience in running (and living in!) coliving houses into the design selections of this home. Whether need to find a cozy nook to tuck away and read in, or you want to tell stories around the fireplace- we have all your home needs covered.

some amenities include: 

  • Breville espresso machine, professional chef knife set, large Instant Pots, GreenPan ceramic cookware & Libbey dishware in kitchens
  • 109″ solid acacia wood dining table 
  • Brand new furnishings from All Modern, West Elm, CB2 and the like 
  • Media rooms with professional grade projectors
  • Furnished patios with lanterns on each story 
  • An outdoor sectional with a fireplace
  • local art, plants & custom entryways

The Location

Based in the Northeast Portland neighborhood of Rose City Park, the building is on Halsey St with some nearby restaurants, pubs and coffee within walking distance (the Barley Pod, a food truck court, is across the street!). It’s a 10 minute bike ride down to Mt. Tabor, and situated right off I-84, it’s quick to drive anywhere in town.
