BWA Architecture designed Lincoln Way to replace an old 60-unit state-assisted public housing development with a new mixed public-private affordable housing neighborhood of 70 homes. The project was funded by tax-credit financing and competitive ARRA stimulus funds.
To enhance this pleasant residential neighborhood in North Cambridge, BWA’s design created townhouses with modern amenities, private rear yards, and communal outdoor spaces. Large windows, durable exterior materials, sustainable design features, and a contemporary design make the new Lincoln Way a signature property for the Cambridge Housing Authority. Design included green design features; ultra-low VOC interior finishes, mold mitigation materials, very high energy efficiency systems, resilient site design features, and rooftop photo-voltaic panels.
BWA played a vital role in garnering community support for the project by leading numerous community meetings and an inclusive design process.
Phase 1 – 2012; Phase 2 – 2013
