In an effort to grow its housing programs, Pine Street Inn would like to convert the Comfort Inn hotel on Morrissey Blvd. into a supportive residence for formerly homeless people.
According to the Boston Globe, Pine Street is partnering with the national nonprofit developer The Community Builders Inc., (TCB) which will purchase the property and oversee its renovation.
The plan is to create between 105 and 110 single-occupancy apartments at the former Comfort Inn. TCB will own the property while Pine Street will oversee support services like housing people, helping them find a job, and arranging home health aides.
The project is currently in an exploratory phase. If the building passes city code inspections, TCB hopes to purchase the property next summer with the goal of tenants moving in by 2024.

Meeting Information Below:
The BPDA is hosting a Virtual Public Meeting for the 900 Morrissey Boulevard project located in Dorchester. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the Small Project Review Application and the project proposal itself. The meeting will include a presentation followed by Q&A and comments from the general public. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, December 7th from 6pm-7:30pm.
TCB 900 Morrissey (the “Proponent”), an affiliate of The Community Builders, Inc. (TCB), in partnership with Pine Street Inn, Inc. (PSI) as a supportive service provider, proposes to change the use of the existing building located at 900 Morrissey Boulevard from hotel to multi-family residential use with ground floor commercial office space (the “Project”). The proposed use will provide housing for formerly homeless individuals, as well as associated amenity spaces located throughout the building, outdoor community spaces for use by residents, and a limited amount of ground-floor office space. In total, the Project will result in the creation of approximately 104 new residential units, 100% of which will be affordable to individuals earning less than 30% of the Area Median Income (AMI).
