The third stage of the Old Colony Housing Redevelopment in South Boston was undertaken in three sub-phases. In phase 3A, four Boston Housing Authority residential buildings were demolished and replaced with two, four-story wood frame residential buildings totaling 135 affordable rental units. The new residential buildings have townhouse-style direct entry apartments on the first floor.
The foundations are supported on geo-concrete column ground improvements, the superstructure is structural wood frame, and the exterior finishes are fiber cement siding and panels. This project is certified as LEED BD+C: Multi-Family Mid-rise.
