AUGUST, 2017 NEI is working with Lena New Boston and ICON Architecture on Phase II of Olmsted Green Apartments in the Boston neighborhood of Mattapan. Yesterday the team joined Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to celebrate the project as well as honor state and city-wide support of affordable housing.
The new construction at Olmsted Green, which began in March, is an expansion of an existing community located along the Mass Audubon Nature Preserve. The property was built on part of the site that formerly housed both the Shattuck and Audubon hospitals.
Olmsted Green was designed with sustainable principles in mind, incorporating garden courts and plenty of open space. The newest phase of the project will add seven two-story buildings totaling 41 units of mixed-income homeownership townhome units to the scenic community.
