High Meadow Townhomes
High Meadow Townhomes is the third phase of a 117-unit affordable housing project in Bourne that includes Canal Bluffs and Clay Pond Cove. Newly constructed in 2018, it consists of 44 mixed-income, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments. Located less than a mile from the Bourne Bridge at the gateway of Cape Cod, High Meadow has easy access to commercial areas, shopping, employment centers and transportation.
In 2007, a local nonprofit, Housing Assistance Corporation (HAC), received a comprehensive permit to construct a three-phased residential community on the 17 acre parcel of land that had been slated for a high tech startup company. POAH, working as a co-developer with HAC, secured a Title V permit for the construction and operation of the first phase of the development called The Residences at Canal Bluffs. The completion of Canal Bluffs in 2009 paved the way for a second phase, Clay Pond Cove, completed in 2011, which included the final build out of a sustainable wastewater treatment plant that serves the whole Canal Bluffs residential community and the abutting retail shopping center. This third and final phase of the project was made possible by $7.6 million in 9% low income housing tax credit equity from Boston Capital and a first mortgage from MassHousing, along with funding from CEDAC, DHCD, Barnstable County Home Consortium, Rockland Trust and MassHousing’s Opportunity Fund.
High Meadow Townhomes marks the completion of this development, which brings more than 100 much-needed affordable, workforce and market-rate apartment homes for families and seniors to Cape Cod.
