Applications & Approval Process

“Thank you so much!!! I am so excited that I will be the proud new owner of 108 Broad St. As you already know from my application, I have been admiring and dreaming about that building since I moved to the South End 8 years ago. I will give it a new lease on life and treat it well. Thanks again for guiding me through this process. I am also really excited about what the Land Bank can accomplish in this neighborhood. I’m glad to be a part of it.”
