An unpaved, little-used parking lot in an economically distressed neighborhood of Boston is now a successful mixed-income, transit oriented development with 84 residential units, a community garden, and retail space that houses a preschool, restaurant and specialty foods store. LIIF provided a New Markets Tax Credit allocation for the project. The 700 Harrison Avenue project is located a short walk from the Silver Line, the city’s new bus rapid transit line. The development will bring much needed mixed-income housing, jobs and services to a neighborhood where 26 percent of residents live below the federal poverty line.
