Ribbon Cutting for Washington Park Apartments
Nuestra Comunidad recently opened their Washington Park Apartments in collaboration with Wise Urban Development and Winn Residential. The 96 unit project will offer mixed-income rental housing for families in Roxbury and Dorchester communities. These 96 units were a historic renovation that incorporated some of the highest rates of minority hiring, and women and minority-owned subcontractors.
John F. Barros, Chief of Economic Development, was the special guest speaker at the event. Executive Director of Nuestra CDC, David Price, when speaking of the ribbon cutting, commented that “Nuestra Comunidad is proud to celebrate the renovation of Washington Park Apartments for many reasons. The most important is that 96 apartments will be stable, affordable homes for Roxbury and Dorchester families for many years to come. We know that a platform of housing stability, security and affordability is a key to families’ success in education and work.”
