“What comes out of this project is about 100 deed-restricted, low-income units of housing,” Walsh said. “We have to make sure on all levels of housing and all levels of income that we’re creating opportunities for housing, not just housing, but job opportunity, as well.”

The project is expected to be completed by next fall.
