Broken ground

Submitted by on 1, July 16, 2008 – 2:55 pmNo Comment

Just wanted to drop a quick note that the folks over at Resources for Community Development broke ground this morning on Shinsei Gardens, a 39-unit apartment development targeted for homeless vets and their families and the disabled, on a portion of the old Fleet and Industrial Supply Center. In addition to providing a roof for a whole bunch of soon-to-be-formerly homeless people, the complex will be super-green, with photovoltaic elements, sustainable flooring and counters, water-saving plumbing fixtures (a must in these dry times) and drought tolerant plants (ditto). The apartments will also be within striking distance of the bus and a variety of social services, and there will be more services on-site. RCD, which also developed The Breakers at Bayport apartments, expects the $18 million project, which will be run by Operation Dignity, to be completed in July 2009. Here’s our original post on this if you want more information.
