The SSEDC’s Housing Committee supports the South Shore Habitat’s Feinberg Bog project in Duxbury (6 homes). These six townhomes on the Old Camp Wing property introduce a smaller square footage product, at a lower price point to the Duxbury community. The developer worked closely with the Town of Duxbury, the Affordable Housing Trust, community members and neighbors to address concerns and to introduce a thoughtful, high quality site design.
The Pinehills is an example of development that can be catalytic in suburban markets. The Pinehills offers a wide variety of housing – condominiums, single family, apartments – with views of protected open space or within walking distance to the two acre park at the heart of the mixed-use Village Green and its shops and restaurants. Walking trails through the woods connect neighborhoods to each other and the Village Green. With direct access to Rt. 3, the Kingston Commuter Rail and downtown Plymouth are a 10 minute drive.
The SSEDC’s Housing Committee supports the Hampton House Apartments and Townhomes development in Braintree (17 new homes). The project offers housing in an interesting and walkable community with easy access to transit via the Braintree T Station and amenities in Braintree’s town center. This is an example of taking an underutilized lot within a walkable area to help bolster nearby businesses, offer easy access to amenities and public transportation and help increase the number of homes needed to meet the region’s growing needs.
