POUA and St. Francis House broke ground on 46 units of affordable housing at The Union at 48 Boylston with Cardinal Seán O’Malley O.F.M. Cap., Governor Charlie Baker, Mayor Marty Walsh, and many important team members, lenders, and supporters. The Union is the adaptive reuse of the historic Boston Young Men’s Christian Union, which will provide 26 units for people who are currently homeless or have been homeless, and twenty units for residents with incomes at or below $43,440. St. Francis House, located across the street, will also relocate their administrative offices into the development and will establish a business on the first floor of the building to provide job opportunities for the people they serve.
