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 have ownership of 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.
