On October 27th our team was lucky enough to meet with Mayor Kim Driscoll and Harborlight Community Partners at 43 Boston Street. We are currently working with Harborlight to transform two rooming houses on Boston Street into affordable, studio style housing for the less fortunate. At 43 Boston Street, where this photo was taken, there will be 26 rooms with onsite laundry, private kitchenettes and bathrooms with a common room on the ground floor. Once this building is complete, which is scheduled for Summer 2018, our team will turn to 179 Boston Street and upgrade that building.

The 331 Lafayette Street Project broke ground this past February and we are pleased to say construction is nearly complete. The project has come a long way as it took nearly three years for the project developer, Robert Bur, to obtain the property in order to start the project. Which were once four separate parcels will now stand as a beautiful single property. The property will serve the surrounding community 8,000 square feet of street-level retail space, including RN Aesthetics and a restaurant. Office space on the upper floors will be leased to Salem State University Assistance Corporation along with other Salem State University offices. We are excited for the exterior is nearly complete and we can tackle the interior work. Click the link below to read more about this project in North Shore Magazine.
