Will there be housing options reserved for seniors on site?

Trinity proposes to restore the historic buildings of the Core Campus, creating 334 new homes for Medfield targeting a mix of income levels. With 25% of these homes as affordable apartments in historic structures, the plan provides alternatives to Medfield’s larger single-family home supply and will be an attractive option for renters and those who are downsizing.

While there are not specifically reserved housing options for seniors, the development team envisions a mixed-income, intergenerational community with housing options for all types of residents and families. In addition, Trinity’s proposed artist preference for 10% of its affordable housing units complements CAM’s efforts to develop a Cultural Arts Center on the former MSH grounds by providing the opportunity to cultivate a true artist community.
