The $33.1M Haynes House modernization project involved an occupied rehabilitation with select renovations to enhance and repair the exterior envelope, replace the 300-foot façade, upgrade building systems and interior units, and provide accessibility. Originally built in 1974, this multifamily residence is a 134,612 square foot, seven-story high-rise with 131 units located in in the heart of Roxbury. The successful redevelopment extends affordability for mixed-income households in perpetuity, creating a vibrant and healthy community through extensive property and landscape improvements.

Enhancements to the grounds include a new multicolored brick plaza and ample green space complemented with a variety of plantings, evergreen shrubs, and ornamental grasses. Tree-lined sidewalks, new seating areas, bike racks, and a contemporary custom iron fence—depicting the art, music, and social scene of the neighborhood—provide a safe and welcoming entrance to the community, inventively interfacing the landscape with the revitalized architecture.
