West End Place Cooperatives
The West End Place Condominium Association is a mixed-income residential community of 183 apartments, an underground parking garage, street-level commercial units, green spaces, and a museum to preserves the history of the old West End neighborhood. Residential units are organized into two housing cooperatives:
- West End Place One Corporation
A residential cooperative comprised of 82 one, two and three bedroom apartments of which: 58 are subsidized by a project based Section 8 contract, and 24 are rent controlled with low income housing tax credits. Those shareholders residing in a Section 8 apartment pay 30% of their income in rent and the balance (based on the market rate) is paid by Housing and Urban Development. The shareholders residing in the low income housing tax credit apartments pay a maximum rent which is based on 60% of the area median income for the family size. Cooperative One maintains a waitlist for all unit sizes and subsidies. The waitlist is currently closed due to high interest and the anticipated wait for a unit is over three years. All applicants who are considered for a unit at Cooperative One are certified as being income eligible per HUD and LIHTC regulations.
- West End Place Two Corporation
A residential cooperative comprised of 101 one, two and three bedroom apartments of which 77 are market rate and 24 are affordable. The 24 HOME Fund units are regulated by the Department of Neighborhood Development and sales are restricted to those households who are at or below 80% of area median income. The re-sale price of these units is also restricted. The market rate units are sold on the open market with no restrictions.
