Transformation of the long-vacant Engine Company 40 Firehouse in East Boston into a vibrant youth arts center - a new home for ZUMIX.

Project Description

ZUMIX is an East Boston-based nonprofit organization dedicated to music: Work has begun to transform the long-vacant Engine Company 40 Firehouse in East Boston into a vibrant youth arts center – a new home for ZUMIX. MHIC’s $3.9 million in New Markets Tax Credit financing closed the feasibility gap to make this project possible. Now located a few blocks from the firehouse, the nonprofit provides top-quality cultural programming as an alternative way for young people to deal with frustration, anger and fear, and as a method of building cultural understanding and acceptance in one of Boston’s most diverse neighborhoods
