BOSTON – June 19, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — MassHousing has closed on $2.1 million in loans for the 66-unit Barstow Village, a newly constructed affordable housing community for senior citizens in Hanover.

Gleason. “This brand new development will be an important affordable housing asset for the town of Hanover and the senior citizens who live there for many years.”

All 66 apartments are affordable and the unit mix includes 64 one-bedroom apartments and 2 two-bedroom apartments in a three-story building. Barstow Village also has supportive services to foster independent living.

The contractor was Dellbrook Construction; the architect was the Architectural Team and the management agent is Peabody Properties.
