Brockton; City Continues to Lure Developers for Market Rate Housing

Developers continue to propose and build market rate housing in the city of Brockton.

Despite an unexpected change in leadership this summer with Moises Rodrigues being sworn in as interim mayor, Brockton continues lure housing projects to the city.  

Nick Giaquinto, the chief of staff for Mayor Rodrigues says the administration is using a strategy that markets the city as being transit oriented and being in close proximity to Boston

There are projects in the works like 127 Center Street with 40 residential units or the former United Furniture at 93 Center Street that features 55 residential units.

Giaquito says one development that’s close to being complete also shares the same developer who is heading up the 127 Center Street project.

 

 A groundbreaking that will include dignitaries like Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito is being held on September 25th.
