Yarmouth, Massachusetts – Located at 881 Route 28 in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts, Yarmouth Commons is Cape Cod’s newest affordable housing community. Dakota Partners, in collaboration with the Department of Housing and Community Development and the Town of Yarmouth, completed construction of this much needed, highly desirable development in late 2019. Residents began moving in over the summer and the units were fully leased in just four weeks.
Featuring three residential buildings, an expansive common green space, fitness center, leasing office, playground, and community center, Yarmouth Commons is conveniently situated near Routes 28 and 6. Two of the residential buildings are two stories in height, one with 19 residential units and the other with 20 units. The third residential building contains 30 units on three floors.
The apartments feature open concept floor plans, spacious bedrooms, and modern kitchens with Energy Star appliances. Units also have a heat-recovery ventilator (HRV) unit that provides continuous fresh air while also enhancing energy efficiency.
In her visit to Yarmouth Commons over the summer, Lt. Governor, Karyn Polilto said of the development, “We very much appreciate the partnership with Dakota – and for their investment in this property that was underutilized as a former hotel in a very seasonal community. Like Dakota, we see housing as an economic development tool and we look forward to continuing to partner on other projects like this. This is a beautiful statement around what housing should look like.”
A real estate developer and construction manager, Dakota Partners acquires and develops multi-family rental and condo communities across New England and the mid-Atlantic, a significant percentage of which are garden-style affordable housing developments. At the core of every project is Dakota’s mission to improve the lives of the people who live in our communities. By integrating high-level design, green building technologies, and quality craftsmanship, Dakota provides warm and inviting homes that enrich both the community and its residents. Strategic partnerships with neighborhood groups and public officials ensure the success of these projects for all stakeholders in the community.
