Peabody Properties Continues Expansion of Portfolio with Phil C. Bradley Housing Partnership in Boston’s South End

Filed Under: Real Estate, Other News
BRAINTREE, BOSTON, MA, ISSUED FEBRUARY 15, 2024… Peabody Properties, an affiliate of the Peabody Companies, a group of award-winning property management and real estate firms, continues to expand its portfolio of managed communities with the addition of the Phil C. Bradley Housing Partnership at 342 Shawmut Avenue in Boston.
The property is located along Shawmut Avenue and Tremont Street, an area of Boston’s South End that experienced a revival at the end of the last century. It encompasses 13 brownstones built in 1920. Featuring handsome pediments and etched cornices, the buildings stand as a testament to the architectural splendor of Boston’s historic South End.
The Partnership was established in 1997 and named after Phil C. Bradley, a former Boston city councilor and community activist who advocated for affordable housing and social justice. Since its inception, it has been recognized as a beacon of community and diversity and a bulwark against blight and community deterioration with a purpose to improve and transform the living conditions among low and moderate-income individuals in the ethnically diverse neighborhood.
“Imagine a building where the walls, once threatened by the expiration of subsidies, are now reinforced with a commitment to keeping the spirit of homeownership within reach for its residents,” commented Luis R. Casiano, asset manager and project director of Bradley Properties.
“This property is more than a collection of 71 units,” said Melissa Fish-Crane, principal and CEO of Peabody Properties.  “It is a vibrant community, home to people from all backgrounds and life experiences. We look forward to getting to know the residents at the Phil C. Bradley Partnership and to continue its mission to provide affordable housing and honor the legacy of its namesake.”
