St. Martin’s Townhouses

St. Martin’s Townhouses have been a centerpiece of their New Haven community since
1967. Fairstead’s extension of the property’s Section 8 status means it will remain that, and
affordably so, for 40 more years.

But first, a revitalization program continues to take St. Martin’s into that affordable future.
Fairstead has spent $17.5M on renovations that are both structural and cosmetic. Every unit has
been updated. Newly renovated kitchens have eco-conscious, Energy-Star™ appliances; new
bathrooms have low-flow fixtures. Flooring and lighting have been replaced as well. Exterior
work included a repainted façade, a renovated on-site playground, and new landscaping.

After acquiring St. Martin’s Townhouses, Fairstead took over day-to-day, on-the-ground
operations of the site. This reflects our core belief that owners make the best property
managers, and such oversight is a crucial step toward achieving the organizational aim to
positively impact individual residents and their community whenever possible. This includes
establishing and maintaining a higher-than-expected standard of property upkeep, as well
as new paradigms for operating transparency and resident communication.

Beyond this, Fairstead’s in-house social services team aims to establish life-assistance
programming tailored to community residents’ wants and needs. More often than not
these services involve issues tied to personal growth and success, including education,
employment assistance, health and wellness, food insecurity, and access to relevant local,
state, and national government assistance programs. At many properties, special events
curated by the on-site team bring neighbors together and foster a sense of community.
