45 Summer Street Apartments  Leominster, MA

With a prominent presence at 25 Summer Street, adjacent to historic Carter Park in downtown Leominster, this project consists of three interconnected 19th century brick buildings constructed for the W.S. Reed Toy Company. In partnership with Andrew J. Cannata, AIA, our design team reconfigured this 38,260 SF building into 36 market-rate housing units, two of them accessible.  The building exterior maintains its industrial appearance with alterations introduced only where necessary to accommodate its new residential function. Units were designed to showcase the red brick walls and the wood columns, beams and deck undersides were left exposed.

The project received historic rehabilitation tax credits and funding from the Massachusetts Housing Development Incentive Program (HDIP).
