On July 20th, Urban Edge and our partners held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening of Holtzer Park. Project partners and stakeholders, community leaders, and officials from local, state, and federal housing agencies were all in attendance for this milestone event.
Urban Edge’s Holtzer Park provides 62 affordable rental homes designed to meet the needs of individuals and families in the Jamaica Plain community. The project includes nine single-bedroom, 37 two-bedroom, and 16 three-bedroom homes. All of the apartments are affordable, with 21 of the units targeting households at 30% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and 41 units slated for those up to 60% AMI. Fourteen of the units are designated for formerly homeless families, for those with disabilities, or for people accessing services through the Department of Mental Health. The project is a green development and achieved LEED Platinum certifiability.
