Commonwealth Apartments

Commonwealth Apartments

1285 Commonwealth Avenue | Allston, MA

In the 1990’s, this 118-unit rental property was at risk of losing its affordability, together with the Glenville Apartments, which had the same owner. For thirteen years, Allston Brighton CDC and the tenants worked together to preserve these apartments as affordable. In 1997, Allston Brighton CDC and the tenants bought the buildings together, guaranteeing that they would stay affordable for the long-term. Today, the apartments are run by a joint ownership board made up of tenants and Allston Brighton CDC. The site is directly along the Green B subway line, close to many restaurants and local shops, and is a short walk to the Allston Village business district.

In 2017, the All Bright Community Center opened on the first floor of 1287 Commonwealth Avenue to better serve tenants by offering case management, referrals, and holistic programming in health and wellness, financial coaching, and more.
