About 9 Leyland Street
Roxbury, Boston, MA
Approved five-story building at 9 Leyland Street to feature 42 units of affordable rental supportive housing and enriched services for seniors to promote healthy aging and high quality of life. The building will have a community space to offer healthcare and social programming to senior residents, as well as a library, lounge, and laundry facilities on the upper floors. Parking (9 spaces) and connections to surrounding amenities such as playgrounds and gardens will be provided. The project will bring significant neighborhood improvements by activating an underutilized site to provide much needed affordable senior housing.
Units are designed to allow aging-in-place for residents within 30-60% AMI. All units will be designed as fully accessible units or designed to be converted into accessible units
