Whittier Cooperative Apartments: First Project for PRG

Whittier School in Black and White

Whittier School building

Shortly after its founding in 1976, PRG began to explore options for purchasing multi-family housing for rehab. PRG worked with the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency (MHFA) to secure funding, and eventually purchased Whittier School, a Minneapolis Public Schools building that was slated to be demolished.

The Whittier Cooperative Apartments (Section 8 housing) was completed by 1980, a successful first housing development for PRG.
