Temple Street Condominiums

In 2003, the St. Polycarp Church sold the property at 65 Temple Street to SCC to develop affordable housing. This condominium complex, a mix of two- and three-bedroom condos, provides an affordable option for moderate-income families looking to purchase their first homes. Fourteen of the Temple Street households were composed of Somerville residents who were able to stay in the City, thanks in part to this affordable opportunity. As a result of a multi-language marketing campaign, the homeowners at Temple Street are an extremely diverse group speaking six primary languages, representing seven ethnicities, and ranging from two to 70 years old. Eight of the units were sold in 2007 to households earning less than 80% of Somerville’s Area Median Income (AMI) and seven of the units were sold to households earning 80-110% of AMI.
