The name "Tent City" may be an unusual title for a thriving, mixed-use, mixed-income community in the heart of a city, but that's exactly what the folks at Goody Clancy call this development. Named after a famous 1968 sit-in in Boston, Tent City harkens back to a neighborhood in protest. Longtime residents of the area were forced out by government redevelopment projects, which ended up leaving the current site of this project vacant for 20 years. By working with various neighborhood groups, Tent City Corporation successfully redeveloped the property to now house 1,200 residents, a daycare, a community space, and retail space while only requiring a 700-car subterranean parking garage which also serves tourists in nearby Copley Place. According to Goody Clancy, "One-quarter of the units are subsidized for low-income families, one-half for moderate, and one-quarter are rented at market rates."
