Boston Mayor, POAH and partners break ground
on redevelopment in Roxbury 

The Whittier Choice Neighborhoods Initiative (CNI) is a collaboration between POAH, Madison Park Development Corporation and the Boston Housing Authority to redevelop the Whittier Street Apartments site in Roxbury. Originally built in the early 1950s, Whittier is home to 200 public housing families.  

The Whittier neighborhood is rich in amenities and is home to some of Boston's anchor educational, civic and cultural institutions. Yet the underlying story of the Whittier neighborhood is the chronic struggle of the majority of its residents, who are among the poorest in Boston.
