Plans are Underway to Rehabilitate the Former Elias Brookings School
November 2, 2020
Allegrone Companies will be working with Davis Square Architects and Home City Development on the redevelopment of Elias Brookings School, a 1925 historic building to be converted into mixed-income housing.
Home City Development Inc. (HCDI), a Springfield-based affordable-housing development organization, was awarded resources from the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) to adapt and rehabilitate the former Elias Brookings School into 42 affordable rental housing units, to be known as Elias Brookings Apartments.
The project will serve a range of incomes, including extremely low-income households, low-income households, and workforce housing. Select apartments are reserved for clients of the Department of Mental Health, people with disabilities, and homeless households. HCDI will offer a variety of supportive services to all residents. The property will be managed by Housing Management Resources, an organization with extensive experience managing comparable properties.
