Great News! More Affordable Homes are Coming to Hyde Park
We are thrilled and humbled to announce that 1201 River Street will soon provide affordable
senior housing in Hyde Park’s Logan Square. The BPDA approved the 100% affordable, 63-
unit, age 55+ apartment community in January 2022 and the Baker-Polito Administration
announced a state funding award last month.
The property will offer resident service coordination with agencies providing wellness,
educational, cultural, and social programming. Stay tuned for more updates!

In her most recent Op Ed, Susan Gittelman describes HUD’s Small Area Fair Market Rents policy as one powerful tool that addresses inequalities, promotes integration and reduces segregation.
“We know that where people live greatly influences their quality of life and that of their children. It impacts their access to transportation, jobs, good schools and adequately funded public services.”
