Our Model


our model.png

GCHA is a self-run, independent co-operative housing association where members of the association share in all aspects of its running. GCHA has been working successfully for the past 38 years. It has not devolved into individual ownership and there is no desire for this successful co-operative to demutualise.

Our History


ernosmall.png

Glenkerry House was designed by Hungarian architect Ernő Goldfinger, and was the final tower block to be commissioned by the Greater London Council (GLC). Goldfinger’s commission also included the neighbouring Balfron Tower and Carradale House, and all three were built in parallel with his “infamous” example in West London, Trellick Tower.

Why are we different?

Glenkerry House is a self-run, independent co-operative housing association in Poplar, East London. Members of the association own their flats and share the running of the association – both financially and administratively.

We accept direct applications from prospective residents. Applicants must show that they meet the criteria, including willingness and ability to help run the association, and financial means to obtain a mortgage to buy their property, pay a monthly service charge and the usual household bills.

Situated within a Grade II listed area Glenkerry House and the neighbouring Balfron Tower and Carradale House were designed by the Hungarian architect, Ernő Goldfinger. He is also responsible for similar blocks in West London, the Grade II listed Trellick Tower.

Comprising 75 flats and four maisonettes, Glenkerry House is a thirteen storey building and was completed in 1977/78. It is regarded as a model for co-operative management of buildings of the type, embracing a community feel with social activities. All flats are sold through the co-operative from its own waiting list. The flats are bought and sold at a ‘discounted’ price, making them more affordable than properties on the open market.
