Mission Hill is just one mile from downtown Boston. Recent updates have renewed the neighborhood, while keeping its original character. Improvements include:
- the addition of mixed-income housing
- the renovation of One Brigham Circle, and
- the growth of businesses on Tremont Street and Huntington Avenue.
The community is home to a large African American and Hispanic population. Students at nearby colleges love the convenience of living here. Many young families who work in the Longwood Medical Area also call Mission Hill home.
Mission Hill is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Boston. Even neighborhood homes are diverse. New condos, brick row houses, and triple-decker homes make the neighborhood an architectural landmark. You can also find Mission Church here.
