Amory Residences at Jackson Square
ENERGY STAR® Outstanding Achievement Award, Multi-Family Executive (MFE) “Affordable Project of the Year”
Davis Square Architects transformed a former tow lot and car wash into 64 units of affordable rental housing in three buildings. One building is six-story steel construction with masonry veneer, and two are four-story wood-framed townhouse buildings. Extensive work was done with the Boston Redevelopment Authority and Department of Neighborhood Development, in addition to the coordination of a Public Improvements Commission process involving Boston Water and Sewer, Transportation, and Public Works. Central to the design was maximizing the number of townhouse units with individual front doors in order to enliven the street. All units were built to ENERGY STAR® Home standards.
