Friday, April 21, 2023
"The development team for 2147 Washington Street has been awarded a $225,000 Affordable Commercial Assistance Fund grant for their 74-unit mixed-use development in Roxbury. The grant will support Jean Appolon Expressions, a dance company focused on contemporary Haitian-rooted dance, by subsidizing their rent for 2,846 square feet of first-floor retail space. With the assistance, their rent will be reduced to almost half the area's average market rate per square foot. The construction of 2147 Washington Street is expected to be completed in the spring of 2024."
