Ohu is creating a new way of being where people and communities are at the heart of property development. We work with communities to develop assets which will sustain and strengthen their community. We believe it is possible for people with a common purpose to work together to collectively create and own assets that generate both a social and economic value. Ohu Development is developing the infrastructure needed to support communities to collectively own what they create together, including property, financial, legal and social structures.

We are gathering a community of change-makers who want to take action in creating a new, connected future.

Ohu Development works with projects that are collectively owned by a community. A community is a group of people coming together around a shared purpose. Common among these projects is building the community while building a building. The result is that we create spaces that comfortably bring people together, as well as generate an income to sustain the community.
