The SSEDC’s Housing Committee supports The Cove development in Hingham (220 new homes). Its proximity to transit through the Ferry Service at Hingham Shipyard will make the area more attractive to a younger talent pool being priced out of the Boston housing market. Additionally, the proximity to Hingham Shipyard amenities and Hingham’s downtown center should help bolster the local economy by adding some additional tax revenue and a larger customer base for existing and incoming businesses. Hingham Town Officials were open to the 40B model in order to make some of the units available at below market rate.
