Commonwealth & Glenville Apartments, Allston, MA

The Commonwealth and Glenville Apartments were a labor of love for the Allston Brighton Community Development Corporation (ABCDC) and the Commonville Tenants’ Council, who spent over 12 years purchasing the property. Davis Square Architects worked alongside the ABCDC and the tenants to complete this HUD expiring use resident buy-out.

The rehabilitation included 17 buildings covering two city blocks in an historic district of Allston, MA. New roofing, windows, and heating systems were part of the scope, as well as substantial historic masonry restoration and accessibility modifications.
