Last piece of Compass affordable housing development begins in West Farms

Construction on the last phase of the Compass Residences affordable housing complex in West Farms began with fanfare Friday, March 19, with an official groundbreaking.

Rising up out of what had once been a marble factory warehouse along an industrial strip, Compass Six will eventually stand 16 stories tall above the neighborhood, providing 261 affordable homes in all — half of which will be reserved for families earning under $52,000 a year.
