Described by the Massachusetts Housing Partnership as the “largest complex of affordable rentals on the Outer Cape,” the $15 million Province Landing project opened in 2012 with 25 one-bedroom units, 21 two-bedroom units, and four three-bedroom units in six buildings. It’s managed by and was developed by the nonprofit Community Builders of Boston under contract with the town, and was designed by Durkee, Brown, Viveiros & Werenfels for a 2.5-acre field acquired by the town in 2007. There were roughly seven applications for every unit at a 2012 lottery to determine eligibility. The project has had its problems, but when 350 families aspire to 50 units of housing, there is no denying the need.
