The SSEDC’s Housing Committee supports the Herring Brook Hill development in Norwell (18 homes). The project is attractive to seniors looking to downsize, but wanting to stay on the South Shore. The project is situated on the old police station parcel, adjacent to Norwell's Town Center. It provides much needed affordable senior housing, within close proximity to amenities and developed an underutilized piece of land.
The SSEDC’s Housing Committee supports the Weston Park Apartments development in Weymouth (42 homes). The project is 1/3 of a mile from the Braintree / Weymouth Landing Commuter Rail station. The project is part of a larger redevelopment effort of The Landing neighborhood which straddles the Braintree and Weymouth town line. It is on an underutilized lot along the Rt. 53 corridor. The convenience of the commuter rail and the proximity to restaurants, coffee shops and other amenities makes the project particularly attractive to younger professionals who find themselves priced out of the Boston housing market, or who are choosing to live on the South Shore, but want a more urban-feeling environment and easy transit access into Boston.
