Projects - Derby Walker House CO-OP

Derby Walker House Cooperative is Berkeley’s first new housing co-op in 18 years. The transfer of title of Derby Walker House Cooperative to its residents and the Bay Area Community Land Trust is the realization of a commitment made more than 40 years ago. This house, at the corner of Derby and Walker Streets, was the pivot of a vibrant community of like-minded neighbors starting back in the late 1960s. For more about the Derby Walker House see Laurie Weitz Frazier’s personal perspective, the video interview with Mary Barnes and the dedication press conference below.
