New England Construction Builds Affordable Senior Housing Development in East Boston

BOSTON – New England Construction, a family-owned construction company based in Rhode Island, is currently building Grace Apartments, an affordable seniors housing development located in East Boston. With this project, NEC is proud to support Boston’s commitment to increase the number of housing units available to seniors.  

Construction is well underway on Sumner Street in East Boston and is scheduled for completion in spring 2022. Grace Apartments will offer 42 additional senior housing units to the Maverick Square community. A Blue Line train station is across the street from the property, making it easily accessible to transportation options, and the building will meet LEED Silver and EnergyStar standards.
“We’re proud to be working on a project that directly helps our local communities,” said CEO Matt Sluter. “Over the next decade, the senior homeless population in the U.S. is projected to triple, and we want to do everything we can to fight that statistic. NEC is dedicated to enacting change in our communities, and we’ll be sure to construct an excellent building that low-income seniors can call home.”

NEC is very grateful to partner with East Boston Community Development Corporation, Affirmative Investments, the City of Boston, MassHousing and the DiMella Shaffer design team on this project.
 For further information, we encourage you to explore additional announcements from DiMella Shaffer and the City of Boston.
