Shresbury negotiating for major development

SHREWSBURY

Shrewsbury town officials are working on a deal with AvalonBay Communities to build about 400 units of housing, 100 of which will be set aside as affordable housing, Town Manager Dan Morgado says.

The development was green-lighted by selectmen after another competing housing project bowed out. The town was eager to get an affordable housing project in the works by October, its deadline with the state for showing progress on affordable housing.

Avalon at Shrewsbury Hills will be built on 36 acres south of route 20, between Centech Boulevard and Green Street.
