Parkview Homes affordable housing construction completed in the village of Auburndale MA in Newton MA
The ten affordable housing units of Parkview Homes located at 192 Lexington Street in the village of Auburndale in Newton, MA were recently completed this month and are now being sold.
There are nine 3 bedroom units and one 2 bedroom unit in the development. Thirty-seven applications were received for the ten available units, and ten income-qualified people were selected by a lottery operated by the affordable housing consulting firm, SEB, LLC of Brighton, MA. (http://www.s-e-b.com).
The development is located adjacent to the Burr Elementary School playground. The entrance is on Lexington Street, but the driveway also connects to Albert Road, a short, residential street, which runs parallel to Lexington Street. Access to Albert Road is gated for use only by emergency service vehicles.
All of the units allocated to the income-qualified lottery winners are under a signed purchase and sales agreement, and there is a waiting list in case those winners do not complete the sale. The homes are to sell as follows: four three-bedroom homes for $278,000, five three-bedroom homes for $190,800, and a two-bedroom unit for $169,000. Deed restrictions on the units ensure that they remain affordable housing.
