2101 Cooperative stands 14 stories tall with 300 apartments. Tenants of the building are shareholders – purchasing shares of the corporation gives the tenant the right to occupy a unit in the building and participate in its operation. Like a condominium, 2101 Cooperative is governed by a board of directors that make decisions on behalf of all residents, including deciding on major purchases.
As a tenant and shareholder in the building, Robert participates on the physical plant committee and has been working to turn the building’s energy and water use benchmarking data into action. Earlier this year, Robert enlisted the assistance of Practical Energy solutions to complete an energy audit of the building to identify the best value opportunities to reduce utility costs and meet the 2030 District goals.
Following the Robert’s presentation, the diverse group of 2030 District property, community, and resource partners present engaged in a conversation around best practices, project examples, and financing opportunities that could help accelerate the 2101 Cooperative's building improvement process.
We look forward to monitoring 2101 Cooperative's progress and leveraging the 2030 District's knowledgable peer network to help meet the initiative's ambitious reduction goals.
