Grand Opening to be Held for Depot Village

Hanson, MA – On June 21 Dakota Partners will celebrate the official grand opening of Depot Village at 171 Phillips St in Hanson.

The first family-affordable housing development to this area, Depot Village provides quality housing for families whose household income is typically between 60% and 120% of the median area income. The lineup of confirmed speakers included State Rep Josh Cutler; State Senator Michael Brady; Mass Housing director of rental business development, Cynthia Lacasse; Hanson town administrator, Lisa Green; MHP director of business development, Nancy McCafferty; Dakota Partners principal, Roberto Arista; and a resident from the community.

Depot Village is PHIUS+ Core pre-certified, a performance-based certification that focuses on dramatic reduction of energy use for heating and cooling. The community features 48 affordable rental units in a single building design in a classic New England vernacular architecture, consisting of 12 one-bedroom apartments, 31 two-bedroom apartments and 5 three-bedroom apartments.

Like many Dakota communities, Depot Village is located just steps from the MBTA commuter rail stop, which is Hanson’s only available form of public transportation.
