ONE CHARLESTOWN is the redevelopment of the Bunker Hill Apartments, 13 blocks of affordable housing in the Charlestown section of Boston. The project will create new buildings and well-lit, tree-lined streets that restore connections between a diverse community and the rest of the neighborhood. The project will build 3,200 units of mixed-income housing on the existing apartment site. All 1,100 affordable apartments now on the site will be replaced.
Built under the New Deal in the 1940s, the apartments today are geographically isolated and physically degraded. The redevelopment will bring new buildings whose design respects history, incorporates contemporary style and reflects Charlestown's character. New neighborhood-serving retail along Bunker Hill Street and two new parks will provide amenities for all of Charlestown.
The Corcoran-SunCal team thanks all the residents who have participated in the redevelopment effort so far. We look forward to working with the entire community to continue to envision and build “One Charlestown.”
