When Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) purchased Hillcrest Village Apartments, it suffered from low occupancy, significant disrepair, and was under threat of losing the subsidies that make it affordable. Davis Square Architects worked with POAH to bring this dilapidated building back to life.

The scope of work included a new roof, windows, elevator, security system, finishes, unit kitchens and baths, high-efficiency boilers, fire and life safety upgrades, brick repointing, and site improvements. The careful attention directed towards energy efficiency will help in managing the affordablility of the property for the long term.
