Bright Street


July 2016 Update: Seven spots left, and counting

Our new 40-unit housing cooperative on Bright Street will open in September. Members will enjoy new buildings, raised-bed gardens, covered parking, and a vibrant community in a great location! Bright Street is in walking distance to downtown and close to bus lines, the Integrated Arts Academy, the businesses on North Winooski Avenue, and the Intervale recreation trail.

What is a housing cooperative?

In a housing co-op “the members are the landlord.” The members run the co-op together, making the decisions a landlord would in a rental.

Financially a co-op is like renting, but the control and responsibility lead to an ‘ownership attitude’ without the financial commitment of buying a home.

Cooperative housing is not for everyone. It is ideal for people with the desire and skills to work with their neighbors and help create a stable community.
