Horizons-Watermark Center - Boston, MA
The Horizons-WaterMark Center (HWC) is a joint partnership between Horizons for Homeless Children (Horizons) and WaterMark Construction and Development (WaterMark) in Boston, Massachusetts. The new construction project will bring together a suite of services which benefit homeless families and their children.
Horizons will occupy 48,000 square feet of the new building, allowing it to expand its existing early childhood education programs for homeless children. WaterMark will sub-lease 87,000 square feet of space to similarly mission-oriented end-tenant users including YouthBuild USA and the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families. The project will also include 76,000 square feet of structured parking. The completed 211,000 square foot HWC will be located between the Boston neighborhoods of Roxbury and Jamaica Plain, across the street from the Dimock Health Center and a short walk from the Jackson Square MBTA subway station.
Building America CDE, Inc., a subsidiary of the AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust, has provided $8 million of New Markets Tax Credits (NMTCs) for the project.
