In 2015, Allston Brighton Community Development Corporation established the All Bright Homeownership Program in partnership with Harvard Allston Task Force, Harvard University, Boston Community Capital, and the City of Boston. Our goal is to stabilize Lower Allston/North Brighton by increasing owner-occupancy in the neighborhood. By providing homebuyers more access to a much sought-after community, the program is designed to support the growth of owner-occupancy and to strengthen the vibrancy of Lower Allston/North Allston.
Allston Brighton CDC has the ability to act quickly when homes go on the market in the neighborhood in an effort to reduce investor ownership. We subsequently resell the homes to individuals or families who want to reside in the neighborhood. By placing an owner-occupancy deed restriction on the property, we ensure that each home purchased through the program remains owner-occupied in perpetuity. Eventually, if they choose to sell the property, they must sell to another owner-occupant who will also call Lower Allston home.
Lower Allston/North Brighton offers residents the feel of a close-knit community with convenient access to local parks, the Charles River, cafés, restaurants, farmers markets, and art and music venues. Residents can choose to stay local and access nearby amenities, or, whether they walk, bike, drive or take public transit, be in downtown Boston, Harvard Square, or Allston Village in a few short minutes. With this program, we are creating opportunities for families and individuals who want to buy and enjoy all the amenities this neighborhood has to offer.
