MassHousing Provides $11M Financing for East Boston Resi Developments
MassHousing has provided a total of $11.2 million in affordable housing financing to WinnCompanies for the development of 22 new rental housing units and 30 new condominium units on the East Boston waterfront.
The two projects, called Clippership Apartments and Clippership Condominiums, involve the redevelopment of a portion of the Boston Housing Authority’s Heritage Apartments public housing community. WinnCompanies will demolish four former Heritage Apartments buildings, which contain 20 units of family public housing, and construct 22 units of replacement affordable rental housing in the Clippership Apartments. The redevelopment also includes the construction of a 30-unit mixed-income condominium building.
MassHousing provided WinnCompanies with a $6.6 million permanent mortgage and $3.6 million in bridge loan financing for the 22-unit Clippership Apartments. The agency also provided $1 million from its Workforce Housing Initiative to support the creation of 14 middle-income condominium units.
