Downing Square Broadway Initiative Tenants Are In!

HCA worked with our new property management firm, Peabody Properties, to help tenants move in and get settled in the new Downing Square Broadway Initiative properties, located on Lowell Street and on Broadway.

This development includes 48 apartments for households of a range of low-incomes. All apartments are occupied — but we do keep a waiting list. Email our property management firm to add your name if you are seeking housing.

Arlington EATS to Re-open in Fall 2022

As tenants move into HCA’s brand new affordable residential building at 117 Broadway (part of the Downing Square Broadway Initiative), Arlington EATS is finishing building out its first floor space, which will become its new home!

This new space will enable Arlington EATS to re-open with more hours and additional services. Both HCA and Arlington EATS are thrilled with this new partnership and look forward to serving you, the community, in new and innovative ways.
