Ellen S. Jackson Apartments

Roxbury, MA

Located on a site that lingered vacant and neglected for 37 years, this new mixed use, affordable senior housing development is named after Ellen S. Jackson because of her connection to the neighborhood and her profound impact on equity and access throughout the City of Boston. In this same spirit of access, the newly constructed four-story building bearing her name provides 40 units of affordable housing for low-income seniors as well as economic opportunities for local vendors in its 5,900 square feet of commercial space. The new housing community features state of the art energy components, a library, community room, a roof terrace and a garden providing community space for resident gatherings. Support services are also available on-site to promote successful independent living, along with 28 parking spaces.
