Blackstone Apartments is a 145 unit low and moderate income community development located in the West End neighborhood of Boston, with easy access to the Charles River and Downtown Boston. The 11-story building was constructed in 1978 and sits adjacent to Massachusetts General Hospital. The hospital provides an on-site wellness and health services program for Blackstone residents. The rehabilitation of the property included a major envelope reconstruction that improved overall thermal performance while providing a much needed upgrade to the building appearance. Other investments addressed energy efficiency, air quality and interior finishes. The design also expanded and reconfigured the property’s existing community spaces making them more conducive to resident use and activities.
