Parker Street Co-op
Parker Street Co-op is a 24-unit limited equity cooperative composed of studios and 1 bedroom apartments, located off of Telegraph Avenue, a few blocks south of UC Berkeley’s campus. We live simply, grow some of our own food, and manage the building together (including maintenance) to keep costs down. We share a monthly meal and have potlucks on Sundays. Parker Street Co-op seeks new applicants for ownership who have the time, interest, and desire to be active participants in sustaining our special community. See our website here: http://parkerstreetcoop.org/
Some key information that has been important to applicants over the years: our units are cozy (around 350 square feet for studios and 500 square feet for 1BR’s); we discourage dog and cat pets; we don’t allow smoking indoors, even in your own unit; there are significant subletting restrictions; and we require members to purchase their member share up front before moving in (currently around $13,000-$17,000 as of the time of this writing, depending upon the size of the unit/we buy in at a lower price and agree to sell at a very low price if we leave) and show that they can pay the monthly carrying charges of about $500, which cover shared expenses. We also have a lot of fun, and we don’t spend all our time making rules! This just addresses common questions we get.
