Jerome Smith Redevelopment

3 Jerome Smith Road (former VFW site) Affordable Housing Development

Jerome Smith Road is a planned 65-unit new construction multifamily development in Provincetown. The Jerome Smith Road project will provide affordable, resilient housing and amenities tailored to the needs of residents of Provincetown. The development will be comprised of four 3-story buildings on a 1.8-acre site providing rental housing for households earning 30% of area median income (AMI), 60% AMI, “Workforce”/moderate-income households (80% AMI), and a handful of market rate units. The development provides urgently needed affordable rental housing in a location where year-round rental housing at all price ranges is under intense pressure from short-term rentals, remote workers, and seasonal owners.

The development will have 18 studio apartment units, 32 one-bedroom units, 10 two-bedroom units, and 5 three-bedroom units. Four of the units will be designated as CBH units for persons with disabilities.

The Community Builders, Inc. (TCB) was awarded developer designation for the site through a Town-led RFP process and purchased the adjacent parcel, 55R Captain Bertie’s Way, which expanded the footprint of the site. Local CDC, Community Development Partnership (CDP) is serving as a local partner/consultant on this project.
