The Boulder Housing Coalition (BHC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Community Housing Development Organization dedicated to creating affordable, sustainable, community-enhancing, cooperative housing for the people of Boulder county. We currently manage three permanently affordable rental cooperatives in central Boulder: Masala, Chrysalis, and as of October 2013 North Haven! These co-ops are home to more than 50 people, and make up the first affordable cooperative housing system in Colorado. We are working to create a federation of housing cooperatives that will provide both affordable rental and home ownership opportunities.
In April of this year the BHC purchased an 8-unit apartment building from Boulder Housing Partners. Situated at the corner of 9th and North Streets, it’s just a couple of blocks from the Ideal Market, North Boulder Park and the high-frequency Skip bus line that runs up and down Broadway. We’ve transformed the dingy, institutional 1955 cinderblock building into a modern, super energy efficient, family oriented co-op called North Haven! North Haven has two, 2 bedroom apartments reserved especially for families, a common house with 18 bedrooms and a fantastic, fully stocked kitchen, as well as other shared amenities.
The addition of this third co-op has doubled the size of the BHC’s co-op system, given us even more bulk buying power, and a broader extended community network. North Haven has only one remaining vacant room. If you might be interested in living at North Haven, you should submit an application, contact the house’s membership coordinator and arrange to come to one of our house meals.
