MassDevelopment Provides $19.6M Tax-Exempt Bond for Mixed-Income Housing Project in Worcester
WORCESTER, MASS. — MassDevelopment has provided a $19.6 million tax-exempt bond for the construction of a mixed-income housing project in the central Massachusetts city of Worcester. The site at 120 Washington St. formerly housed the headquarters of Table Talk Pies, and the project is part of a larger redevelopment that will ultimately feature 400 residential units and 20,000 square feet of commercial space. Units will come in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom formats. The borrower and developer, an affiliate of Boston Capital Development, will use the bond proceeds to construct 59 apartments, while the other 24 residences will be financed with Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and other subsidies. Eastern Bank and Rockland Trust purchased the bond. Construction is slated for a February 2024 completion.
