A dilapidated building in the Maple High Historic District of Springfield was gutted and rehabilitated to provide 55 affordable housing units. The project also involved two other buildings. A historic house was razed and the property was converted into a park. A third building was razed to make way for surface parking. The sponsor has developed several other multi-family properties in this neighborhood and has been active in working closely with city, state, police and fire officials to address issues of crime and safety.
