Boston – December 01, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The Boston Housing Authority has awarded Community Builders, Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corporation, and Urban Edge the developer designation for its Amory Street Development. Amory Street is an elderly/disabled public housing development in Jamaica Plain. The three accomplished non-profit and local developers have joined together to create the Amory Partners, a joint venture, led by The Community Builders group.
The Community Builders (TCB), Jamaica Plain NDC, and Urban Edge will serve as co-developers and owners for this venture and TCB will serve as property manager. TCB has a 50-year history of project development with an outstanding track record in the city of Boston. Their work in Boston includes the delivery of 1,430 units of affordable and mixed-income housing in the past five years.
In the event that daytime relocation will not suffice, the BHA will need to resort to temporary on-site relocation. Special “hotel units” will be designated at the property into which households may move for a limited number of days while work is completed in their apartments. That would be for as short a number of days as possible.
