BOSTON – Some much-needed affordable housing is coming to Roxbury.
The zoning board has approved a new building for the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts. The League will be headquartered on the ground floor, and more than 60 condos and apartments will be on the upper floor — all of them affordable. The 83,000-square-foot building will also include garage space for about 24 vehicles.
Most new buildings in the city only have a small portion of their units reserved to be affordable housing.
