Rochdale Village, Inc.
The premise of Rochdale Village is affordable homeownership and attractive housing for working-class families with moderate incomes. The cooperative’s layout is based upon the Le Corbusier concept of architectural design, and was created to be a "city within a city". This attractive community currently spans 117 acres and provides its residents with open green spaces and the feel of suburbia, within the limits of the urban Jamaica area. When Rochdale Village opened in 1963, it was the largest private housing cooperative in the world.
