The third stage of the Old Colony Housing Redevelopment in South Boston is being undertaken in three sub-phases. In this phase, four Boston Housing Authority residential buildings were demoed and replaced with two, 4-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 tracking LEED Gold.
