From the City of Boston's press release:

Mayor Kim Janey, South Boston Neighborhood Development Corporation, Caritas Communities and the Boston Housing Authority (BHA) celebrated the grand opening of the O'Connor Way Senior Housing Development today in South Boston. The project has brought 46 one-bedroom units of affordable housing to South Boston using formerly vacant Boston Housing Authority land and Inclusionary Development Policy (IDP) funds secured through the Boston Planning & Development Agency.

"I’m delighted to welcome the new residents of O'Connor Way Senior Housing,” said Mayor Janey. “As Boston residents age, many want to continue living in the city they’ve known and loved for their entire lives. This new development has replaced an empty lot with beautiful, affordable homes for seniors in our South Boston neighborhood."

O'Connor Way Senior Housing was built on BHA land that had been vacant for over 50 years. The development includes 24 units that are subsidized using federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits, and 22 units made deeply affordable through project-based vouchers administered by BHA. 


“Three years ago, it would have been difficult to imagine the beautiful community that is now standing here at O’Connor Way,” BHA Administrator Kate Bennett said. “Every unit in this new community represents a new opportunity for Boston residents to age in place with dignity and peace of mind. It is exciting to see such a creative idea come together and have such an immediate impact.”
