HOW IS A CO-OP DIFFERENT FROM A CONDO?

CO-OPs and condos are similar in many ways. In a CO-OP, however, every resident is a shareholder, which means that they own a share of the building, like stocks in a company. This system helps to ensure that the building is run with the residents in mind, and you have a say in important decisions.

WHAT IS PARKING LIKE AT THE MARK CHESTER?

There are a total of 61 parking spaces both indoor and outdoor for building residents. You may need to wait on a waiting list if your apartment does not have a designated spot. If you have a spot that you no longer need, you may rent your spot to another building resident at your discretion.

ARE PETS ALLOWED AT THE MARK CHESTER?

Pets are allowed. Other buildings in Riverdale choose to ban residents from having pets. We don't think that this is right. We understand the importance of pets in the lives of our residents and have formed our pet policy accordingly.

 

Kindly consult the bylaws for more information.

DOES THE MARK CHESTER HAVE A BOARD?

Yes! The Markchester has a board comprised of 6 elected shareholders who work to improve life in the building for all residents. There is a shareholder board meeting held once a year in the spring where residents can communicate directly with the board to make suggestions and air their concerns.

 

You can contact the board directly at markchesterboard@gmail.com
