The development of Cote Village by the Planning Office for Urban Affairs, Inc. (POUA), and Caribbean Integration Community Development (CICD) is a unique partnership between two non-profit organizations who share a commitment and vision to increase affordable and workforce housing opportunities and generate economic benefits in the development of residential and mixed-use projects in Boston’s neighborhoods.
Cote Village consists of 76 homes total. There are 56 homes financed by the 4 and 9 percent Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit). 16 percent of the apartments are restricted at 30 percent AMI, 3 percent of the apartments are restricted at 50 percent AMI, and 55 percent of the apartments are restricted at 60 percent AMI. The balance of the homes is restricted at 80 percent AMI and 100 percent AMI.
Located in close proximity to transit, as it is adjacent to the Blue Hill Avenue station on the Fairmount Line, POUA and CICD developed this transit-oriented development to fit the style and scale of the surrounding neighborhood through a combination of four townhouse buildings that serve as a transition from Cummins Highway into the neighborhood and a 5-story building that faces Cummins Highway. Active and passive amenities, as well garage and at-grade parking, sit between the buildings, and the back of the site borders the MBTA commuter rail line.
