The SSEDC’s Housing Committee supports the Redbrook development in Plymouth (1,200 homes). Redbrook offers a wide variety of types of housing and offers a community with access to shops, restaurants, and walking trails, as well as a community center. It is a quick drive to downtown Plymouth, approx. 10-minute drive to access Rt. 3 and a 20-minute drive to Kingston Commuter Rail. The development team from A.D. Makepeace has worked closely with the Town of Plymouth and will also be introducing some workforce housing into the property. This is a strong example of smart land use.
