Beacon Avenue Affordable Housing

  • A seven-story building with 84 units: 66 studios, 12 one-bedrooms, and 6 two-bedrooms.
  • Rents targeted at 30%, 50% and 60% AMI.
  • 3,800 SF of ground floor commercial space that will allow El Centro to expand its award-winning programs across the street from its main campus on Beacon Hill.
  • This site is next to El Centro de la Raza’s Plaza Roberto Maestas, the Beacon Hill Light Rail Station, on bus routes 36/60/107, and walkable to many services such as grocery stores, banks, restaurants, an elementary school and the Beacon Hill Library.

We hope to break ground in July 2024 and deliver units to low-income households by the end of 2025.

This project is an innovative partnership between a non-profit Community Based Organization and a local for-profit BIPOC developer in which both parties bring unique capabilities to a shared mission of serving low-income households and strengthening the Beacon Hill community.

We’d also like to extend a very special mil gracias to the Estate of Jorge Marrero for their generous contribution to make this project possible.
