Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030

By the year 2030, Boston will reach more than 700,000 residents, a number the City has not seen since the 1950s. Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030 is the Walsh administration's comprehensive housing plan.

Housing Boston 2030 is the City's strategy to responsibly plan for our growth. By creating housing across demographics and neighborhoods, we will help ensure that growth and prosperity reaches every corner of Boston.

To accomplish this goal, we are going to help create 53,000 new units of housing at a variety of income levels across the City:

  • 44,000 units of housing for the workforce
  • 5,000 units of housing for our senior citizens
  • 4,000 units to stabilize the market and bring rents and housing prices under control.
Key Stakeholders

We would like to thank the members of the Mayor’s Housing Task Force 2014 and the Working Groups for their hard work on this housing plan.
