Pawtucket Central Falls Development is proposing to demolish a dilapidated two-family home at 38 Japonica Street, Pawtucket, RI due to significant cosmetic and structural deficiencies. The building will be demolished and the project site will be prepared for the construction of a new, energy efficient mixed income residential structure with five rental units. The scale and design of the new building will be similar to the buildings at Branch Blackstone in Pawtucket as well as the surrounding community on Japonica Street. Four units will be deed restricted as affordable rental housing and one will be a market rate rental. One of the affordable units will target a family that is currently experiencing homelessness. Once completed, the new homes will be energy efficient, lead-free, and use cost-appropriate green technology, including energy star-rated appliances and windows, efficient heating systems and long-lasting roofing and siding products.
