Our Builds

We’re building! We currently have two ongoing construction projects: Balina Place in Dorchester and Fairmount Street in Dorchester.

In Progress Builds

Balina Place

Habitat just finished construction of two homes at 15 and 17 Balina Place, which are complete and occupied. We also acquired the land next door and are now building three more homes at 7, 9, and 11 Balina Place. This 5-home condominium development is located in the Codman Square area of Dorchester in Boston. Dorchester is our Neighborhood Revitalization Focus neighborhood.

Fairmount Street

Habitat is renovating a two family home located at 172 Fairmount Street in Codman Square in Dorchester, our Neighborhood Revitalization Focus neighborhood. We are replacing the roof, wiring, plumbing, replacing the kitchens and bathrooms, and installing new heating systems and windows. When completed, we will convert it to condominium homes for purchase by Habitat families.

Neighborhood Revitalization Program

Habitat Greater Boston is a proud participant in the Neighborhood Revitalization Program. We are taking a holistic approach to creating change in our neighborhoods that have the greatest need for stability. This means joining residents, nonprofits, businesses and local government to discover what is needed most in a neighborhood, and helping to implement a shared vision of revitalization.

Our focus neighborhood is Codman Square in Dorchester. We have partnered with the Codman Square Neighborhood Council to identify important ways to improve the neighborhood and surrounding areas.

Completed Builds

Over 4000 volunteers along with sponsors, donors, building partners and the homeowner families, help us build homes for deserving families every year – thank you!
