Project Goals

The William Barton Rogers Middle School in Hyde Park is no longer used as a school but is a perfect location for senior housing. It is in close proximity to many amenities with easy access to transit options. The building will be New England's first LGBTQ-friendly senior housing development, with 74 units available at a range of incomes from 30% AMI to 100% AMI. The development will offer a range of services to help residents successfully age in place and contribute to the Hyde Park community.
