NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions hosted a ground-breaking ceremony last week on the site of its newest housing development in Holbrook.
The property, located at 120 North Franklin Street in Holbrook Center, will be the site of a 72-unit senior housing community. NeighborWorks Housing Solutions serves as developer of the project, with The Narrow Gate architecture, NEI General Contracting, and property manager Maloney Properties making up the project team.
This project has been five years in the making, with a variety of organizations involved in advocating for the development as well as providing financial support.
With the addition of these apartment homes for seniors, NHS now owns, operates or maintains nearly 1,000 units of housing in the southern Massachusetts region.
“It is a pleasure to announce the start of construction for this highly anticipated project,” said Robert Corley, CEO of NeighborWorks Housing Solutions. “The need for affordable housing, especially senior housing, continues to grow. This type of housing will allow seniors to age in place, and continue to create housing opportunities for all. We are proud to partner with the town of Holbrook with the creation of a safe and affordable housing opportunity for seniors in the community.”
