Bunker Hill Housing Redevelopment

Charlestown, MA

Built in 1940, the existing Bunker Hill Housing development is severely depreciated with many of the buildings in disrepair. These buildings will be replaced with new residential, retail and community space, as well as green spaces and connections to the surrounding Charlestown neighborhood.

The Bunker Hill Housing Redevelopment project, formerly One Charlestown, will create a vibrant, new mixed-income and affordable residential community that works for all Charlestown residents and pays homage to Charlestown’s rich local history.
