Safe and affordable housing

Expected to be completed in the fall of 2025, the Summer Street Apartments will help address Rhode Island’s housing crisis by increasing the number of safe and affordable apartments for formerly homeless adults.

Summer Street will provide new and improved housing to current residents of Crossroads' Tower apartments, expanding their single-occupancy rooms to fully-furnished, one-bedroom apartments.

Specifically designed to meet the unique needs of this population, Summer Street will include accessibility and usability features for people with a wide range of physical and cognitive abilities, such as visual cues for safety and way finding.

Features of the Summer Street Apartments

Each beautiful, fully furnished, one bedroom apartment will include a private bathroom, living area and fully equipped, eat-in kitchen. Future residents will also have access to case management and other supportive services as needed to help them maintain their housing, as well as common space on every floor to help promote community.

Outside, a large, landscaped courtyard will enhance the urban neighborhood and provide green space for residents, which has been proven to be beneficial for mental health. The net zero building will also be entirely solar powered and is conveniently located near public transportation.
