Peter Strickman, Beacon House
MassHousing provided $16.6 million in financing to Rogerson Communities to renovate and preserve affordabilty at Beacon House, a 135-unit building for seniors in Boston's high-cost Beacon Hill neighborhood. Peter Strickman has lived in the building since it first became affordable housing in the 1980s.
He praises the "tremendous and incomparable staff" that helped to create a "calm, peaceful and congenial community" for him and his fellow residents. Rogerson Communities, MassHousing and the City of Boston negotiated an agreement that will keep the units in Beacon House affordable in perpetuity for lower-income seniors.
"It's simply wonderful that we will have a permanent, affordable and dependable place to live for many years to come," said Strickman
