MassDevelopment’s Board of Directors voted to negotiate a development agreement with Evergreen Village Collaborative for 120 units of housing in Deven’s Grant Road area.
“We look forward to working with Evergreen Village Collaborative on this new Devens neighborhood,” said MassDevelopment President and CEO Marty Jones, in a release. “Demand for nearby housing is likely to grow with 3,600 employees already working at Devens businesses, and these unit types will appeal to many workers.”
MassDevelopment will sell the development sites to Evergreen Village Collaborative, a Lexington-based group, which has proposed a neighborhood style development with a variety of unit types, the release said.
