This mixed income development will provide 108 new apartments in an area of the city that is undergoing rapid transformation. It will replace an older public housing development with two new midrise apartment buildings, landscaped recreation areas and parking on a three-acre site. The complex includes 54 public housing units, 27 moderate-income/work-force units, and 27 market rate units. Key features of the project include design for resiliency on a site near the seashore that is subject to flooding. Accordingly, all residential units and all mechanical equipment are located at or above the second-floor level. Parking garages and entry lobbies occupy the first floor, and a “dry” path of egress is provided from the second floor to a pedestrian path that is raised above the 100-year flood level. All the apartments are designed to the same high standard of quality in terms of materials, finishes, appliances and unit sizes.
