Mattapan Station Redevelopment
Boston Planning and Development Agency; Preservation of Affordable Housing
The proposed Mattapan Station project will be comprised of a mixed-use, mixed-income residential, commercial, and retail development program in the Mattapan neighborhood of Boston. The POAH-Nuestra team’s development concept was crafted to respond to the expressed needs and goals of the Mattapan community and the MBTA’s requirements. The Nuestra Comunidad Development Corporation has been a mainstay in the Mattapan neighborhood for over a decade, providing affordable housing opportunities and working with the neighborhood to provide community services. Preservation of Affordable Housing has a long track record of housing development and neighborhood transformation in Greater Boston and beyond. They have joined forces in an effort to build upon what makes the Mattapan neighborhood so important – its diversity and the strength of its residents.
This proposed mixed-use, mixed-income rental project will help to leverage local opportunities for growth and expansion by adding jobs, creating commercial and retail services, and providing stable affordable and workforce housing. HSH provided grant assistance in obtaining a MassWorks grant for transportation safety improvements and updating utilities within the project area.
