U.S. Representative Stephen F. Lynch has secured $850,000 in funding for the construction of a new community-oriented center to be run in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Boston at the Mary Ellen McCormack (MEM) public housing complex in South Boston during its planned $2 billion redevelopment.  

In collaboration with the Boston Housing Authority, WinnCompanies will redevelop the MEM community in two phases, delivering 3,300 mixed-income apartments on the 30-acre site, including the replacement of all 1,016 affordable public housing units with a guaranteed right to return for current residents.
