Supporting Leefort Terrace Residents

All Leefort Residents will be temporarily relocated off site during construction and will have a right to return to Leefort after it has been rebuilt. Existing Leefort Resident rents will remain unchanged, being held at 30% of their income. SHA plans to accommodate relocation needs of current residents in units held vacant in the SHA portfolio. Current residents who cannot be accommodated by the SHA will be accommodated in  other rental apartments in the community. Beacon will provide relocation assistance to all current Leefort residents, including but not limited to finding temporary replacement apartments acceptable to each resident, and covering costs (including moving costs) that exceed residents’ current housing costs. Beacon will engage Housing Opportunities Unlimited (HOU) to oversee all aspects of the relocation process. All costs related to the relocation will be covered as a development expense.

Our Commitment to the

Community of Salem

Working with Regenesis Group, the approach focuses first on developing a Story of Place, seeking to deepen our understanding of the many social and ecological interrelationships that make Leefort Terrace, its immediate surroundings, and Salem unique. We are aiming to harmonize with these natural and social systems as we move from our understanding of place to inform the project.
