What is the GTA?

The Gateway Tenants Association is a volunteer organization that informs its members and all Gateway tenants, and advances mutual interests including the preservation of rent control. We meet with Gateway management to discuss tenant concerns; keep track of neighborhood developments that affect our quality of life; and promote social events that allow residents to meet and share common interests. The GTA was founded in 1982 and has been a vocal advocate for the neighborhood and renters from day one.
