Brighton Campus Fun

Already great is getting even better.

Boston Housing Authority (BHA) selected 2Life to redevelop its John J. Carroll Apartments in June 2019.  2Life and BHA worked closely with the then-residents of  John J. Carroll to develop a plan for this new community that is now underway; to replace older, outdated buildings with a modern, more comfortable, energy efficient and accessible building.  J.J. Carroll House will include 124 one-bedroom and 18 two-bedroom apartments and an 11,000 sq. ft. PACE center operated by Element Care. A bridge will create a year-round accessible connection with direct access to all the Brighton campus amenities, programs and services making the Brighton campus even better.
