ABC member company NEI was responsible for construction on two of the properties including the new construction of a LEED Silver certifiable four-story building on a formerly vacant lot on Washington Street. The structure features a combination of eight residential units and 1,000 SF of retail/office space on the first floor. The second property involved the historic rehab of a century old three-story brick structure on Lyndhurst Street which was damaged in a 2007 fire. The rehab consisted of a complete gut and full building reconfiguration, creating eight new residential units. In addition to these two properties, WLW also involved the construction on a second vacant site creating 13 units as well as the preservation of 14 occupied units in the former Whittier School.
Collectively CSNDC, Elton + Hampton Architects, NEI, Northern Contracting Corp, Landmark Structures, and all funders, were able to provide 44 affordable units to extremely low-income families- five of which will be designated for the homeless. This effort will help to revitalize the neighborhoods near the Fairmount Commuter Rail.
