The Beverly application is due! Hurry to get Workforce rental pricing in Downtown Boston.

Boston downtown view south

The Beverly apartment building movie is here, shot by your host – smallwall.net. We wanted you to see, hear and feel the area. Saint Anthony’s Feast was happening just around the corner. We stepped away  to find an ATM because all feast food is cash only –  and saw this building and the space around it.  The Beverly is located in the North End. A self-described “luxury”  building, it has become the most talked about affordable housing project in town, because of the listed rental prices and its downtown location.

MORE AFFORDABLE  APARTMENT LEADS  ARE HERE.  For busy working people, the The Beverly rents  are competitive.  People who make more will pay more. but  the building has luxury apartments priced to your  workforce wage, which on average in the neighborhoods, hovers around $38,000 annually.  Among the young professional urban market crowd, salaries starts at $50K  on average. So there is something for everyone at the Beverly, you might say.  It has lots of units for people who qualify for the “Affordable Housing Deal.”

 

Smallwall.net thinks the building is beautiful. But there is a concrete jungle surrounding it and there’s not much you can do about that. Ocean water is not too far away, Charlestown is around the corner.  You can walk the bridge, pass by Renaissance Hotel and you’ll be at the Naval yard where the USS Constitution ship is docked.  The photo for this article is a view of downtown Boston looking South from the Beverly.

The annual salary of the working poor.

Working poor individuals and families are the focus  of many government programs. The Wikipedia defines the working poor as [ working people whose incomes fall below a given poverty line. Depending on how one defines “working” and “poverty,” someone may or may not be counted as part of the working poor. While poverty is often associated with joblessness, a significant proportion of the poor are actually employed. ]

In Boston Massachusetts, the working poor family has 5 household members and an income of $28,800. For comparison, the American Community Survey reports that an average Boston family has a median household size of 2.47 and income of $52,433. In the US the median household size is 2.6 and the US median household income is $51,425.

Income-restricted, rent reduced, subsidized rental apartment rates are intended for the working poor and the entry level middle class family. Each development has different income criteria. For example, the Oxford Ping On development in Chinatown accepted families with annual household income of $20,000.

But most properties advertised as “Affordable Apartment Rentals” or Workforce Rentals expect the income for a household of one to be at least $34,000 to support rents of $1,050 mo.
