With its trademark vision and creativity, Atlantic Development created an opportunity where no one else had seen it. The team assembled 100 acres of land on Route 53 in Hingham. They shepherded the project through an extensive local, state and federal permitting process to allow for 2,265 units of quality senior housing for Erickson Living Retirement Communities. Linden Ponds is now home to almost 3,000 seniors and is the single largest taxpayer to the Town of Hingham. This well-appointed continuing care alternative provides hundreds of jobs for area residents, including high school and college students.
“Atlantic Development and Erickson Retirement Communities developed Linden Ponds in Hingham, a master planned community of over 2,000,000 square feet. The community has provided retirees with a wonderful opportunity to remain in the area and have healthcare services available to meet their needs. Hingham currently receives in excess of $2,000,000 per year in real estate tax revenue and to date the development has paid over $10,000,000 to the town in real estate taxes, building permit fees and excise tax payments. D.J. MacKinnon, President of Atlantic Development, has also taken a leadership role in numerous local civic and charitable activities. Based on our experience with Atlantic Development and Mr. MacKinnon, we would rate them a highly advantageous developer to work with.”
