While the goal is to keep the unit affordable, its actual listing price will depend on the neighborhood where it is located. If it’s downtown, renters could pay up to $1,300 a month, Hodges said. If it’s somewhere outside of the city center but near a bus or MBTA line, rent could be slightly under $1,000.
