Frost Terrace - 1791 Mass Ave
Frost Terrace will create 40 affordable rental homes in the heart of Porter Square. Developers Sean Hope and Jason Korb, through their entity CC HRE 1791 Mass Ave LLC, purchased three contiguous parcels at 1791 Mass Ave and 1 and 2 Frost Terrace in the Agassiz neighborhood. They will preserve three existing houses on the site, including the full restoration of the historic building at 1791 Mass Ave, as well as adding a new building. The units will be affordable in perpetuity, with all units restricted to low- and moderate-income households. The majority of the units will be family-sized, and the project will feature an indoor play space. The design will focus on sustainability, including energy-efficient fixtures and systems. The project received a comprehensive permit, and is now under construction. It is anticipated that the apartments will be ready for occupancy in late 2020.
