This 54-unit limited equity development occupies the former sites of vacant buildings and empty lots, and included the renovation of two existing buildings. The majority of the units are two-, three-, and four-bedrooms, designed with families in mind. A particular challenge of the project was to provide each family unit with its own front door and yard or balcony, while still keeping the development within an affordable housing budget. The requirements to create as many individual entrances as possible, as well as the need for high density led to a scheme of “overlaying” floor plans. The main building section consists of a pair of side-by-side duplex units, with another stacked pair on top, all of these accessed from individual doors at each “stoop”, topped by single-loaded corridor flats (accessed by elevator) located on the fifth level of the structure. In addition to the housing units, the development includes 5,900 sf of first-floor commercial space, as well as site design and landscaping. A special effort was made to fit the development architecturally and historically into the neighborhood, which involved incorporating the original brick facades of the renovated buildings into the design, along guidelines established by the South End Landmark Commission and the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
