RTH Awarded State's First Homeownership Resources in Years

Governor Patrick announced Friday in Uphams Corner that our client, the Roxbury Tenants of Harvard, which is redeveloping a portion of the former Massachusetts Mental Health Hospital site in Boston's Longwood Medical Area, will receive critical State funding for 43 new affordable condominiums in the project. This funding is the first in Massachusetts for affordable homeownership since before the recession in 2008. 

The 43 condominiums are part of a larger multi-family project which will consist of 60 units of affordable rental housing, 43 units of affordable condominiums, and 42 units of market-rate condominiums. The building, which will be 11 stories tall, and is designed by ADD Inc., will sit on a one acre lot next to the Brigham's Building of the Future which is currently under construction.

TC provides RTH with turnkey project management services related to this project and assisted with application and preparation for the State funding rounds.
