Developed by Pawtucket Central Falls Development, the Middle Street project consists of five 2-family homes at 54-78 Middle Street in Pawtucket. Once a vacant lot, each property was sold to a 1st-time homebuyer qualifying as low-moderate income with the second unit as a market rate rental, which helps provide additional income for the owner occupant. This mixed-income approach provides housing across the wage spectrum while at the same time helps to increase the residential density in the greater downtown area. Homeownership opportunities within Pawtucket are ideal for commuters, who will have access to I-95 and the planned Pawtucket/Central Falls station.
The development received Homeownership Investment Fund (HIF) awards and BHRI III (Building Homes RI) funds.
