The Parker Street Co-op is a 24-unit co-op composed of studio and 1BR apartments. The Co-op is a non-profit corporation owned by its owner occupants. We purchase shares and rent back to ourselves.
Members give at least 90-day notice when they leave, and no departures are known at this time.
We will announce future openings and any information about tours or information sessions that go along with those. We don't have tours or information sessions at other times due to limited volunteer resources. Thanks for your understanding!
The coop: We are a limited equity coop of 24 units in two buildings convenient to BART and public transportation in downtown Berkeley at 2335-2341 Parker Street. The coop is owned by a non-profit corporation whose only members are its shareholder residents, and we are ages 12 to 85. We buy our shares at a modest rate and agree to limits on their price when selling them later. The current share price is about $21,000 for the 1BR share, with a monthly assessment for common expenses of about $500 for the 1BR unit. Food is not included in the shared expenses, and we do not do shared cooking other than one shared meal per month that is a potluck. We live simply and co-own/manage the property together to keep it affordable for us and for those who come after us.
Questions? E-mail email@example.com. We only do information sessions or tours when a unit is available.
All are welcome to apply. We seek people who are ready and able to be owners and to invest the time and skill it takes to self-manage our coop together.
