Planning and Real Estate Development

Boston Housing Authority’s (BHA) Planning and Real Estate Development Department is committed to building and maintaining vibrant and healthy communities based on the principles of quality housing, sustainability, partnership, accessibility and opportunity.

  • Planning leads BHA’s sustainability efforts, develops outside resources and partnerships, and advances strategic plans for the BHA portfolio.

  • Capital Construction oversees ongoing capital improvements to BHA’s portfolio of 12,000 public housing units.

  • Real Estate Development oversees the transformation of Boston’s most severely distressed public housing into thriving new communities. Over 2,500 units of new housing have been created through public-private partnerships two-family – more than three-quarters of a billion dollars in investment.
