The move, which is partially funded by MCAD, is scheduled to take place in early November, weather permitting. The grounds will be landscaped and open for campus use. The Whittier Neighborhood Alliance will update the homes and ensure code compliance with new electric, plumbing, heating and AC. Full basements with egress windows, full bath, and room for bedrooms or a family room, will also be available. In addition, the first and second floor living spaces will be refreshed.

The homes are expected to be available for sale to an owner occupant later this year.
