ONE Neighborhood Builders is celebrating the groundbreaking of our new housing
development Amherst Gardens, our NeighborWorks Charter, a Welcome to our new
Executive Director and Promotion of the Yes on 7 Housing Bond; on Friday, October

Amherst Gardens is a $10.4 million housing project that has been in the works for
several years; including a 36 residential and 2 commercial unit scattered site
housing redevelopment in and for Olneyville. The Olneyville neighborhood was among
the hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis. Now, instead of tolerating boarded doors
and windows, Olneyville is rebounding with renovated properties offering healthy
affordable apartments to 36 individuals and families. «ONE Neighborhood Builders has
once again assembled an innovative and transformative project that will continue the
revitalization of the Olneyville neighborhood. And, National Equity Fund is proud
to partner with ONE NB» said Tony Lyons, NEF’s senior vice president and head of
East originations team. ONE NB continues its campaign to improve the neighborhood,
block-by-block, making it a better place for everyone to live, for families to raise
their children, and to find employment. The development provides much-needed
affordable housing, and resolves long-standing areas of blight.
