Some of our newest apartments took shape at 75 Cross St. in East Somerville in late 2012. The building contains eight affordable apartments that are now home to formerly homeless households, some of them families, and provides project-based Section 8 affordable housing to tenants.
SCC purchased this property from a developer who intended to build condos on the site but ran into financial difficulties. Since the foundation was already built, we were able to construct the building in record time.
In addition, we are partnered with the Somerville Homeless Coalition to provide support services to residents.
