In what could be a game-changing development in Vineyard Haven, a development team is  looking to build up to 80 units of housing with 75 apartments set aside as affordable or workforce housing.

The development, which is in the preliminary stages and has not yet been filed with the planning board or the Martha’s Vineyard Commission, is proposed at the site of H.N. Hinckley & Sons  Hardware, which was sold in August to Larkin “Barry” Reeves for $2.3 million.
