Congress Street Residences
On September 15, North Shore Community Development Coalition received funding from the Department of Housing and Comity Development to develop Congress Street Residences in Salem’s Point neighborhood.
“We believe that every low-income community should have the chance to thrive, and when people can afford to live in decent homes, their quality of life improves,” said Bob Van Meter, Executive Director of LISC Boston.
Congress Street Residences is a significant neighborhood revitalization initiative in the Point neighborhood. North Shore CDC acquired these buildings in December 2014 and began the one-year construction project in Spring 2016. The rehab of the buildings will include all new roofs, mechanical systems, all new windows, extensive masonry repairs, all new kitchens and baths, and unit reconfiguration in most buildings. The development will include 16 units for households earning less than 30% of the area median income and 7 units for formerly homeless households, with the balance of the apartments available to households at 60% of area median income.
