Commonwealth Apartments

In the 1990’s, this 118-unit multi-family rental property was at risk of losing its affordability, together with its neighbor, the Glenville Apartments, which had the same owner. For thirteen years, ABCDC and the tenants worked together to organize the residents to preserve these apartments as affordable. In 1997, ABCDC and the tenants bought the buildings together, guaranteeing that they would stay affordable for the long term. Today, the apartments are run by a joint ownership board made up of tenants and ABCDC.
