Hardy Street, Beverly – Family Housing (6 Units)

2 Hardy is a new project sponsored by Harborlight Community Partners. We will construct a new 3‐story building on a vacant lot in downtown Beverly, creatng 6 new affordable two‐bedroom homes for families. The site, donated by Beverly Crossing, is well‐located and a short walk from both the Commuter Rail and downtown Beverly’s amenities. The area is also well‐served by bus lines, making this a truly walkable, transit‐oriented development.

The project is comprised of six two‐bedroom units. All will be affordable, for families with income at or below 50% AMI.

The new building will be constructed with energy efficiency in mind: high efficiency heating and cooling, Energy Star appliances, LED lighting, increased exterior insulation, triple pane windows, and solar panels on the roof.

Will add to the tax base of the Beverly community (HCP pays property taxes in our host communities).

Anchor Point I & II, Beverly – Family & Individual Housing (79 Units)

The Anchor Point vision:

  • 77 two– and three-bedroom apartments for families
  • 15 units reserved for homeless families
  • Resident services available to all residents
  • Will add to the tax base of the Beverly community

To be located in Beverly, Anchor Point will be comprised of 77 affordable two- and three-bedroom apartments for families; 15 units (20%) will be set aside for homeless families, in response to the needs identified by the Mayrs’ Regional Homelessness Task Force. (With the Mayors’ Task Force, an innovative regional approach, the cities of Beverly, Salem, and Peabody entered into an MOU to each increase housing for homeless families and individuals.)

Acting proactively to encourage the creation of new affordable housing, the City of Beverly voted to designate the site as a 40R district. This zoning designation allows for multi-family housing to be built, while simultaneously providing for incentive payments from the State to benefit the City.

The site is currently vacant. The project will include two residential buildings and one Community Building, to be the “heart” of the Anchor Point community.. The Community Building will provide space for after-school programming, adult education, and recreation for all residents. A variety of play spaces will be incorporated into the site, as well as community gardens. All parking will be provided on-site, and the buildings will be solar ready.

Granite Street Crossing, Rockport – Family & Senior Housing (23 Units)

  • 17 Supportive senior units in one building
  • 6 Family townhouses
  • Resident services available to all residents
  • Will add to the tax base of the Rockport community

HCP proposes to transform 5 Granite Street, the site of a former greenhouse operation, into 23 units of affordable multi-generational housing. Granite Street Crossing will redevelop the vacant site into vibrant new housing, within walking distance to the town’s commuter rail stop as well as downtown shops, parks, and amenities.

Working closely with the neighbors of 5 Granite Street, HCP was able to ensure that they were engaged in the project design and could voice concerns and suggestions. This collaborative effort resulted in not only necessary permitting approvals, but with the full support of project abutters – even attending public meetings in support of the project.

The project has been thoughtfully designed to fit within the existing residential neighborhood. Granite Street Crossing will be transit-oriented, service enriched, multi-generational housing. We hope to create a model of multi-site supportive housing, building on the existing base of units at Pigeon Cove Ledges and Rockport High School Apartments to bring services to all three buildings.

Maple Woods, Wenham – Senior Housing (45 Units)

HCP is proposing to build affordable, senior housing for people over the age of 62 in Wenham. The community will encompass 45 units in total, and will offer the same enrichment services offered in other HCP senior properties. This project had been under appeal until early 2019; with an agreement reached and the appeal process concluded, HCP is looking forward to moving this project to fruition. Maple Woods also allows Wenham to reach the state-mandated 10% threshold for 40B housing.

  • 45 units in this beautiful & tranquil setting
  • 3.5 acres at 62 Maple Street
  • On-site property manager & service coordinator
  • Supportive services for seniors and on-site enrichment program (art classes, author talks, holiday celebrations)
  • Van service to shopping and other activities
