The Community Builders (TCB) recently completed the 53-unit North Commons at Village Hill, marking the final phase of the redevelopment of the former Northampton State Hospital site in Northampton, Massachusetts.
North Commons at Village Hill was conceived in partnership with the city of Northampton and Valley Community Development to bring more affordable housing opportunities to the Village Hill campus. The development includes deeding 20 acres of conservation land to the city, open space preservation, a state-of -the-art playground, multiuse path connections, and sustainable landscape design practices.
The latest phase includes 14 workforce housing units for households earning up to 90% of the AMI, with rents limited at 80% of the AMI to adjust to the local market.
The development also features 12 units restricted to households earning up to 30% of the AMI, three units restricted to households earning up to 50% of the AMI, and 24 units restricted to households earning up to 60% of the AMI.Read More
