What was formerly the convent for St. Augustine Church will be redeveloped into income-restricted senior housing in South Boston. This project, led by the South Boston Neighborhood Development Corporation will maintain and restore the façade of the existing five-story brick building originally built in 1926, and construct a rear addition to the building.
Of the 35 senior units,19 will be made available to those earning no more than 50 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI), and 16 units will be made available to those earning no more than 30 percent of the AMI. The existing trees in the front courtyard will remain on site, and the project will add new landscaping, an entryway, and a seating area. The side of the building will also include covered resident bike storage.
