One Greenway at Parcel 24 held a progress meeting on Feb. 26 at 38 Oak Street. The meeting was hosted by the Asian Community Development Corporation and New Boston Fund. Suffolk Construction, the general contractor for One Greenway, also attended.
Construction for One Greenway is currently underway at the corner of Kneeland and Hudson streets. One Greenway will include a mix of 217 market-rate units, 95 affordable rental units, and 50 affordable homeownership condominiums. The 362 units will reside in two buildings. Affordable rentals and homeownership units for low and moderate household incomes account for 40 percent of all units. An underground parking garage will have 135 parking spaces for residents, in addition to the 50 parking spaces that will be open to the public for a market-rate fee.
Construction of the underground garage is in progress with contractors laying down the concrete foundation system which is estimated to be done in April. Starting in early May, steel will begin to go up for the first building that will house the market-rate and affordable units. Construction of the second building with 50 condominiums is estimated to begin in spring 2015. One Greenway will also include green construction technology such as central heating.
Individuals who are interested in these units should contact May Lui, Housing Outreach Coordinator of ACDC at (617) 482-2380 ext 212 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
