Proposes Redevelopment of the Bunker Hill Public Housing Development.
Charlestown, MA – Corcoran-SunCal, in partnership with the Boston Housing Authority, recently filed a letter of intent with the Boston Redevelopment Authority for design and construction of the redevelopment of the Bunker Hill Public Housing Development, known as One Charlestown.
A new mixed-income community will replace all of the existing public housing on a one-for-one basis, as well as add market-rate housing to attract new residents and revitalize the neighborhood. The 27.6-acre site will consist of 13 blocks of well-lit, tree-lined city streets that will be fully integrated into the Charlestown neighborhood. The current plan calls for approximately 3,200 units altogether, replacing all 1,100 current units of public housing and adding 2,100 units of market-rate, rental, and for-sale housing.
