Quaint 3 Bedroom Co-operative housing townhouse
This quaint townhouse is in the lovely Briar Rose Housing Co-operative in the Menisa neighborhood of Millwoods, Edmonton. Many bus stops & bus routes, along with a major public transport hub with direct routes to downtown are close to this complex. The Housing Co-operative is also close to both public & Catholic, elementary, junior high & high schools; a public library; a City of Edmonton recreation centre, several shopping plazas including a large mega shopping outlet; walking/biking paths and many parks/playgrounds. Due to the Co-op's proximity to Anthony Henday Drive, access to anywhere in Edmonton and surrounding areas is accessible. If you live in a housing coop you are a member. The deposit in a housing cooperative is a member loan: $1000 upon occupancy & $10 per month per adult membership share.
What is Co-op housing?
Housing cooperatives provide not-for-profit housing for their members. The members do not own equity in their housing. If they move, their home is returned to the coop, to be offered to others who desire an affordable housing option.
Because coops charge their members only enough to cover costs, repairs, and reserves, they can offer housing that is more competitive than average private sector rental housing. Coop housing also offers security and members look out for each other. "It takes a village....". Coops are controlled by their members who vote on decisions about their housing without an outside landlord. Briar Rose housing Co-operative operates under the following principles which highlight our values:
- Voluntary and Open Membership
- Democratic Member Control
- Member Participation
- Autonomy and Independence
- Education, Training & Information on housing cooperatives.
- Co-operation among Co-operatives
- Concern for Community members
- Building a diverse community of members who work towards the common good of the coop.
