A new study
The Mary Ellen McCormack Housing Development will be transformed into a giant mixed-income development. Back in June, WinnCompanies filed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) for the first phase of the redevelopment of 31 acres.This initial phase, which comprises 18 acres, will include the construction of eight new residential buildings and the renovation of an existing boiler plant as a “Community of Opportunity” center. Phase one is expected to take 8-10 years. So how will this process affect the residents of the development?
According to Universal Hub, an interdisciplinary team of researchers, led by faculty at Boston College, have been awarded a grant to study how the massive makeover will affect the health and well-being of more than 1,000 children and adults who live in the vintage complex.
