In order to address the lack of affordable housing for seniors, O’Connor Way will transform a vacant site that has sat unused for the last 50 years into a 46-unit, affordable elderly housing development in the heart of South Boston. 34 units will be reserved for households at/or below 60% of area median income, with 12 units for households at/or below 30% of area median income, 5 of which are set aside for homeless households. Three of the units will be handicapped-accessible.
The project will be LEED Silver-certified and also includes a manager’s unit, community room, laundry room, and a manager’s office. Additionally, the development is within walking distance of the Andrew Square MBTA Red Line station.
