With a track record of 40-plus years in national multifamily leadership, the architecture firm, The Architectural Team, Inc., recently announced three key milestones for the firm's projects.
These three buildings include new and rehabilitated properties reflecting the firm's continued and varied residential work through adaptive reuse, affordable and mixed-income housing, community revitalization, and senior living.
The Lofts at Loomworks
The first milestone, a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 6th for the conversion of a historic mill in Worcester, Mass., now The Lofts at Loomworks, welcomed a 94-unit affordable housing community in a former textile loom plant originally built in 1890. Revitalizing a long-dormant property, the project adds to a long line of historic adaptive reuse work by The Architectural Team, including the firm's three decades of work on the Baker Chocolate Factory complex in Dorchester.
On Friday, April 8th, The Architectural Team celebrated a site demolition in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood, clearing the way for the six-story, mixed-use Ashmont Tire. This transit-oriented development will comprise 51 affordable rental units and 32 market-rate condominiums. Designed for LEED green-building certification, Ashmont Tire's combination of new housing and retail business is seen as a cornerstone of the area's continued revitalization.
The Residence at Five Corners
The grand-opening celebration for The Residence at Five Corners is set for Tuesday, April 12th. This new senior living complex in North Easton, Mass., offers 84 comfortable and design-forward residential units set in the heart of town. Reflecting The Architectural Team's commitment to integrating senior living campuses into their surrounding neighborhoods, these well-located communities bring residents closer to local cultural and recreational attractions.
