Scope
60 Senior Rental units, 20 Senior Homeownership units, 8,000 sf Senior Center, New Construction

The Town of Halifax has a large and increasing elderly population and these seniors are in desperate need of affordable housing and support services. In response to this growing demand Davis Square Architects is working closely with South Shore Housing Development Corporation, the Halifax Housing Authority, the Halifax Council on Aging, and the Town of Halifax to develop a comprehensive design and development solution.

Located on a 9.5 acre parcel currently owned by the Halifax Housing Authority the development team is working to design a three-part solution including an 8,000 square foot Senior center, 60-units of affordable elderly rental housing, and 20-units of affordable elderly homeownership units.

This innovative combination of three interrelated uses will be developed under the Massachusetts “Comprehensive Permit” statutes, in close consultation with the Town of Halifax.
