Redevelopment Construction Starts at Boston’s Mildred C. Hailey Apartments
Construction has commenced on the redevelopment of Mildred C. Hailey Apartments in Boston’s Jackson Square. Various officials and stakeholders attended the groundbreaking ceremony hosted by The Community Builders (TCB) and Boston Housing Authority (BHA).
“This is a great day for our residents, for our neighbors in Jamaica Plain, and for future generations of low-income families who will proudly call Mildred Hailey their home.” said BHA Administrator Kate Bennett.
The initial phase of the Centre Street Partners (CSP) collaboration involves the construction of two six-story buildings on Lamartine Street. These buildings will feature 223 affordable and moderate-income apartments, a new community center named Anna Mae Cole Community Center, and ground-floor commercial space.
Over the next decade, CSP aims to replace seven residential buildings with approximately 673 homes, preserving 253 affordable units and creating around 420 new homes for low and moderate-income families—funding from multiple sources, including the City of Boston and various financial institutions.
