Auburn Court is a development consisting of 137 units of mixed-income housing. It is located within University Park, a 27-acre parcel in the Cambridgeport neighborhood owned by MIT and leased to Forest City Development. University Park is a mixed-use development that includes office space, research and development facilities, retail stores, a hotel and over 400 units of housing.
The development was the culmination of over 15 years of community activism to develop affordable housing at University Park. HRI developed Auburn Court in two phases consisting of a total of 137 units. This is a true mixed-income development with low, moderate, and market-rate families. Most recently, we added 9 new affordable units (affordable to households earning below 60% of area median income). HRI also extended the affordability restrictions an additional 40 years, and currently has a contract with the Cambridge Housing Authority for project-based vouchers for both new and original low-income units.
