Documents the move of Glenridge Apartments from private to tenant ownership, beginning in 1970. Includes by-laws, newsletters, minutes, and correspondence of the three Glenridge Apartments' residents' associations.
Glenridge Apartments was created as part of the Diamond Heights Redevelopment Plan adopted in the 1960s. Originally planned as a moderate-income co-operative, Glenridge was instead created as a rental development to fulfill Federal Housing Administration requirements. It was considered a model complex, with racial diversity of residents, and part of a desirable neighborhood mixed in with private homes.Loretta Starvus Stack was a resident of the Glenridge Apartments and an officer of the Glenridge residents associations, working to improve services for residents. She advocated for regular bus service to the neighborhood, and founded the nearby Crags Court Community Garden. She is credited with organizing the conversion of Glenridge to cooperative ownership.
