Brunswick-Holborn & Columbia Wood Apartments: ED+C Award finalist

Environmental Design + Construction magazine’s Annual Excellence in Design Awards recognizes buildings that demonstrate a clear commitment to efficient and sustainable design and construction. Chosen as a finalist in this year’s multi-family residential category, Mostue & Associates’ Brunswick-Holborn & Columbia Wood Apartments project is the renovation of 10 buildings in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston.

The renovations demonstrate a highly effective approach to sustainability, using rigorous life-cycle considerations and economical innovation. Consisting of ten residential units (98 units of low-income housing), a community computer center, and management offices, the revitalizations allow these historical residential buildings to function as high-performance housing for the next thirty years.

The Brunswick-Holborn & Columbia Wood Apartments development and design team believes that this project is exemplary in its creative application of environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable concepts, and hopes that the excellent results can be widely duplicated.
