Upper Washington Ribbon Cutting, 8/29/17

The Vietnamese American Initiative for Development, or VietAID for short, held a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, Aug. 29, for its newest building, Upper Washington, on Washington Street in Dorchester. All 35 units are filled and the waiting list is closed, which speaks volumes about the need for good, affordable housing, a goal that VietAID and Trinity Management both pursue.

Another Dorchester property

Trinity is managing a 16,184-square-foot, mixed-use three-story building at 299-309 Hancock Street, which is separated by a small surface parking lot from a two-story, 2,680-square-foot residential building at 289 Hancock Street. We refer to them in Yardi as AU Washington (where do we get these names?!) with an address of 289-309 Hancock. The two buildings sit across from the forthcoming, long planned 388,400-square-foot Dot Block. There are three commercial spaces and 13 residential one- , two- and three-bedroom units.

Lots of employees met Theo Brisbicos, the new Community Manager for Boston East at the RHA Annual Conference and Trade Show. Longtime favorite employee Erick Soto joined the Boston East staff as the new Leasing Manager, leaving folks at 35 @ Eight Sixty a little blue. But, together they should do a whirlwind job of leasing up the 174 market-rate apartments in this luxury, waterfront building at 126 Border Street in East Boston. The building, located at 126 Border Street, isn’t quite finished, but the leasing office has a home at 86 Border Street next door.

Treadmark tragedy

Most of us know about the fire at The Treadmark building in Dorchester last month, which happened one day before a final safety check and implementation of the sprinkler system. Now, it is time to rebuild, and Trinity development personnel are all the more determined to do so after so much encouragement from the neighborhood and city.

“There has been an outpouring of good wishes from people throughout Dorchester,” Trinity Financial principle Jim Keefe said. “It is amazing when things like this happen, the kindness that people can show; it re-establishes your faith in the human race and reminds us that what we are doing is very important.”
