Rental Housing Development Program

Rental Housing Development

JAS develops and owns affordable rental housing targeted for lower income households. These units are managed by two management companies. SC Management Company manages the 273-unit JAS-affiliated housing at 402 Rindge Avenue (shown right). This is a 100% HUD-funded building with a waiting list that is controlled by HUD and MHFA. The waiting list is opened periodically for applications by specific categories of households, but it is generally closed to new applications. To inquire about vacancies at 402 Rindge Avenue, please call SC Management at 617-876-5855.

Rental Housing All other JAS-affiliated rental units (307 total) including our newest completed project, Elm Place, are managed by Maloney Properties Inc. Not all of the properties in the portfolio have open waiting lists; please contact the management office for availability of applications. We particularly encourage Section 8 mobile voucher holders to apply for these units. Please call Maloney Properties Inc. at 617-661-7190 to inquire about an application.

Current Projects

Bishop Allen Apartments - In the Spring of 2012 Just A Start purchased this expiring use property near Central Square which consists of four eight-unit buildings.  The buildings include 27 three-bedroom and 5 two-bedroom units and represent an important stock of affordable family housing units that were at risk of being converted to market rate housing.  JAS intends to refinance and modernize the buildings in the Spring of 2014.

402 Rindge Avenue is the largest complex in the JAS portfolio.  Starting in 2014 JAS plans to refinance and modernize this 22 story tower.
