"The re-development of Wayne will help preserve affordable housing for the next generation of Boston's inner-city residents," said Cruz Companies President and CEO John B. Cruz, III. "Cruz is proud to join Mayor Walsh and Secretary Ash to celebrate this milestone, which also provided major employment to area residents and minority contractors."
Cruz was joined by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Jay Ash, State Sen. Linda Dorcena Forry and City Councilor-at-Large Ayanna Pressley at the ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house, celebrating the $33 million rehabilitation.
"Preserving and improving communities has major benefits across our city, and I'm proud we were able to renovate these 83 homes," said Mayor Walsh. "I thank all partners involved in this project as we work to ensure all Boston families have access to housing that is affordable and accessible."
Cruz Companies recently completed the renovations, installing new roofs, kitchens, baths, energy efficient windows and doors, plumbing, flooring, masonry, paint and security systems. The project employed 258 workers logging 71,000 hours with more than 80 percent workers of color and 65 percent Boston residents.
