Please join a discussion on Parcel 1B, a mixed-use development in downtown Boston. The project’s 239 residential units will be income-restricted for individuals, couples and families with qualifying incomes. Additionally, 10 percent of the residential units will be three-bedroom units, providing much-needed affordable family housing in downtown Boston.

The unusual building required an extraordinary assembly of financing sources to pull it off. Yet despite its complexity, the project offers a template for other developers to meet the city’s goal of building more housing that middle-income residents can afford.
