Newly Renovated and Excellent Location

Buy into the Maya Angelou Cooperative and own an affordable coop unit in a vibrant community of long-time residents who purchased their 9-unit building in July 2014 and are committed to affordable  homeownership in their Marshall Heights neighborhood (Ward 7). The coop will undergo renovations during February – April 2015 including: new roof, all new windows, new individual furnaces and air conditioners, new flooring, appliances, and lighting. The Coop will begin selecting new members as early as March 2015, so submit your application as soon as possible.
