MassDevelopment is looking for a developer to build housing on a 70-acre site at the former Fort Devens located outside of Boston. The agency expects 120 units to be constructed, with 25 percent reserved for low- and moderate-income residents. Allowed uses include single-, two- and multi-family housing, along with elder housing, nursing homes and municipal uses, reported the Boston Business Journal. Last year, residents from the towns of Harvard and Ayer rejected a developer’s plan to turn former barracks at another site at the 4,400-acre redevelopment project into 246 units of affordable housing for seniors and veterans. Devens hosts 99 businesses, nonprofits and governmental entities that employ more than 3,200 workers, according to the Journal.
