Washington Beech ROSLINDALE, MA
Transformed as a HOPE VI community, this revitalized housing centers on a new park and connects back into the surrounding Roslindale neighborhood with new streets and sidewalks. 216 apartments, in a range of housing types, engage this new public realm. A 5-story apartment building marks the primary corner of the site with one- and two-bedroom units and a community center open to view. Townhouse style two-, three-, four-, and five-bedroom units array around the central park and bounding new streets, with inviting front door stoops and private rear yards for each unit. Incorporating a photovoltaic array, and leading edge energy and air quality strategies, Washington Beech earned LEED for Homes Gold and LEED-H Midrise Gold.
