Mayor Martin J. Walsh joined the Boston Housing Authority (BHA) and community partners Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) and MassHousing to celebrate the first grand opening at the award-winning Flat 9 at Whittier, Phase One of the redevelopment of the Whittier Street Apartments in Roxbury, a public housing community which first opened in 1953.

Once all three phases are completed, the redevelopment will replace 200 existing public housing rental apartments with 210 deeply affordable units, and create 262 additional units of mixed-income rental housing. The redevelopment of the Whittier Street public housing development will also create 14,000 square feet of commercial space. Continued here
