“We selected Brinshore because of their successful track record of repositioning public housing sites, said Jerry Gille, Director at Quincy Housing Authority. “They were able to address our most urgent need of improvement in our housing portfolio. It is exciting for us to have an enhanced community for our residents to call home.”


“It is always an honor to provide quality, affordable housing to those in need”, said Richard Sciortino, Principal at Brinshore Development. “We look forward to serving residents and further collaboration with the Quincy Housing Authority.”
