Boston, MA. With a focus on ending family homelessness in the Boston area, Boston city officials along with Massachusetts state officials broke ground this week on a new complex in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood. Once complete, the $5.5M project will include 12 family housing units for mothers and their children along with a community center and after school program for children and teenagers.
Nixon Peabody represented Brookview House in the long sought financing and construction of “Brookview House III.” This is the third Brookview development in Boston, with facilities that provide emergency, short-term and long-term housing options for women and their children. The deal team was led by real estate partner Chris Froeb who did the financing and construction contracts with real estate associate Christina Ricotta. Energy and environment partner Ruth Silman handled the zoning aspect of the deal.
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh attended this week’s groundbreaking ceremony. The new facility is expected to open in June 2019.
