What's in the Works
Chelsea has been selected to envision a $120 million redevelopment of the existing Innes Apartments public housing community. Under the leadership of the Chelsea Housing Authority and the Innes Residents, private capital will be secured through Joseph J.

The proposed redevelopment plans create a place for all people to live, work and grow by fostering upward economic mobility. The redevelopment of the Innes Apartments public housing community in Chelsea will offer new homes for all current residents and create a fully accessible, mixed-income, mixed-use community.
