109 Gilman Street

When 109 Gilman Street went on the market in 2005, the rents were affordable but the building was at risk of being converted to more expensive rental or condo units. SCC purchased 109 Gilman Street in June 2005, with the intention of keeping rents for the 6 three-bedroom units affordable as well as improving the condition of the building.

A 50-year affordability restriction has been put in place to ensure that the units remain affordable to families at a range of incomes. Two of the units are reserved for formerly homeless households as part of collaboration with the Somerville Homeless Coalition.
