This project involved acquisition and substantial rehabilitation of 20 SRO units in the Dudley Square neighborhood of Roxbury. The property, a 3-story wood frame lodging house, had fallen into serious disrepair and was vacant except for one unit occupied by a security guard. In 2000, with financing from MHIC, the City of Boston and other sources, the sponsor was able to bring back this needed, affordable SRO housing.
