Amenities at Parkway 1208 support this family oriented development including a community room, a craft/homework space, a zoom room and conference room, a fitness area, a children’s play area, a community garden and much more!
Last Wednesday we celebrated the opening of Parkway 1208 with a ribbon cutting ceremony joined by supporters, neighbors and contributors. Thank you to all of the speakers and guests who made it out to West Roxbury for this momentous occasion.
“It is especially exciting when mixed income apartments with affordability are built in a neighborhood where we have been working really hard to site affordable rental housing and we need to do more. It is a model of possibility for what income restricted family housing across the City of Boston should look like.” – Mayor Wu
This ceremony marks the end of a successful construction process and an exciting beginning to all the future residents of our latest property, Parkway 1208.
