NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ A new type of neighborhood called a cohousing community is coming to Nashville.

The Nashville Ledger reports construction on the project in the Germantown area is expected to begin near the end of the summer. It consists of privately owned condos, green space, a common house for neighborhood gatherings and environmental efficiency.

Although there are several such communities around the U.S., says the project will be among the first in Tennessee.

Neighbors are expected to range in age from their 30s to their 70s and include singles and families. Decisions affecting the community will be made by consensus and different opinions are welcomed as long as people remain respectful and civil.

Home prices will range from $194,000 to $360,000.
