In partnership with St. Francis House, POUA plans to rehabilitate a designated Boston Landmark, the former BYMCU building located at 48 Boylston Street, to create 46 units of affordable housing in the Chinatown neighborhood of Boston. Later phases of the project are planned once the rehabilitation is complete, and will include additional affordable and moderate-income housing. POUA and St. Francis House have been meeting with various community groups over the past year to receive feedback on the project and gain support from local residents and businesses. On November 4th, we met with the Chinatown Resident Association (pictured) to discuss the project.
We were so excited to celebrate the dedication of 80 units of affordable housing at the former site of the St. Kevin’s Parish in Dorchester October 29th. Cardinal Seán O’Malley and Mayor Marty Walsh, among our partners Bank of America, Department of Housing & Community Development and St. Mary’s Center for Women and Children, helped cut the ribbon at the new site. The three buildings include 20 units of permanent affordable housing for homeless families and 60 units of workforce housing for moderate-income households.
On November 2nd we were thankful to celebrate the opening of The Apartments at 165 Winter on Winter Street in Haverhill, joined by Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Mayor James Fiorentini and Undersecretary for Housing and Community Development Chrystal Kornegay. The building, formerly a public school, now contains 12 units of affordable housing, with 25% being for extremely low-income households, and the remainder providing housing for middle-income households.
