About J. J. Carroll Redevelopment
130 Chestnut Hill Avenue, Brighton, Boston, MA
The approved project includes the demolition of the existing buildings and construction of a new six-story, approximately 180,000 square feet 142 residential units, an approximately 11,000 square foot Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) Center, and ground floor "Village Center". The Village Center will primarily be common space included in the residential square footage such as a multi-purpose room, Resident Service Coordinator offices, lobby, marketing/leasing office, and potentially a small resale shop and salon for residents. The ground floor will also contain approximately 1,200 square feet of commercial space, which is envisioned as a convenience store with fresh foods that would primarily serve the Proponent's staff, its residents and would also be open to the broader community. Approximately 70 parking spaces are proposed 41 in a parking garage and 29 surface parking spaces.
Existing residents of the J.J. Carroll Apartments will be offered apartments in the Project once construction is complete. The Project will be linked to 2Life’s existing senior housing community adjacent to the Project site which offers numerous programs and services to residents.
All apartments will be affordable to households earning up to 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI) with additional subsidies for many apartments to serve households up to 50% AMI. The new apartments will be designated for households age 62 and over, except approximately 13 units set aside for people with disabilities with a preference for those under age 62. To support the City’s goals of ending homelessness, 2Life has committed to setting aside 10% of units for homeless or formerly homeless households.
