The elderly housing, Hong Lok House located at 15-25 Essex Street, Boston, MA 02111 provides 28 units to elders. It is funded under HUD’s 202 program with Section 8 subsidies for elders who pay 30% of income.
A new Hong Lok House project was developed in 2006. The site to be redeveloped for this project includes the existing Hong Lok House, a vacant land at 11-13 Essex Street, and an alleyway at 23-25 Essex Street. The project has 74 units of elder housing that will be affordable to low-income elders. The current adult day health program will be relocated at street level rather than in the basement, and several added spaces for socialization, exercise and other community activities will also be created for residents of the building and elder from the surrounding community.
