Old Colony: Phase 3A

BOSTON, MA

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 in process for USGBC LEED Gold certification in the BD+C: Multi-Family Mid-rise category.
