FPA was retained by Trinity Orient Heights Limited Partnership to obtain construction and environmental approvals for the redevelopment of an existing 15-acre, 331-unit Boston Housing Authority public housing development. The original development, constructed in 1951, received limited renovations in the more than 60 years it was in use. The project involves the demolition of all buildings and replacement of the 331 units with new townhouses and mid-rise buildings. An additional 42 non-public housing units will be provided at market rate. New public open space includes a landscaped park, a play area, and a plaza. An 8,000 square foot on-site community center and public way improvements will also be constructed in association with the redevelopment. The Project is anticipated to be complete in 2022.
