The Fenway CDC

Kilmarnock Street and West Fenway Apartments

When these buildings opened in 1990, they were the first new housing built in the Fenway in 60 years. They also represented another milestone: they include the country's first apartments bulit with federal funds for people with HIV. "K Street" contains 52 mixed-income, family-friendly apartments; the West Fenway Apartments feature 55 rental units priced to be affordable for low-income elderly and handicapped residents. Although bulit simultaneously and seemingly a single structure, the buildings' finances and organizations are independent.
