Affordable Neighborhood Cooperative Program

Case Study: Hamilton Heights HDFC

Hamilton Heights HDFC is made up of twelve buildings totaling 134 units. Hamilton Heights HDFC was one of UHAB’s first development projects: UHAB acquired it in 2002 by tenant petition. With a total development cost of $20,600,000, all twelve buildings finished construction in 2009. Originally, each building planned to become an individual cooperative but in 2009 tenants voted to become a “community cooperative.” The community co-op has been operating successfully and independently since 2012.
