Northgate Apartments

With 336 units, Northgate Apartments is Vermont’s largest single subsidized apartment development.  Concerned that the owners would convert Northgate into market rentals or luxury condos in the late 1980s, the government, under then Mayor Bernie Sander’s leadership, played a major role in helping convert the complex to resident ownership and establishing long-term restrictions to ensure it remained permanently affordable.  As a result of their efforts, the building is now owned by Northgate Residents Ownership Corporation—a resident-controlled, nonprofit organization.
