La Quinta is for Sale and we need your help!
La Quinta Apartments has been a feature and fixture of Capitol Hill since 1927, but its future is less certain. Please help preserve this unique Spanish Eclectic building, its hidden jewel of a courtyard, and the vibrant, inclusive community that the building has created and inspired over nearly a century. The tenants efforts already made possible that La Quinta was designated a historic landmark.
Now the property is for sale, and we are willing and able to purchase the property as a cooperative. However the owners are not willing to sell to us, preferring to sell to a buyer who can purchase in cash.
The sale is expected to close by this Wednesday August 11, and we are asking for an extension on that deadline with the help of your signatures!
