The project involved the gut renovation of the existing buildings to create 34 new units of affordable housing in Quincy Center. The 4-story structure on the site consists of two buildings – one a historic church and the other an office building that was added on when the church was converted to office space in 1985. The new project joined the buildings with an enclosed bridge structure. The Fort Street housing development transformed a badly neglected building into a vibrant housing community, helping to revitalize the neighborhood generally, enhance the pedestrian environment along Fort Street through improved design, and provide a consistent source of property tax revenue for the City of Quincy.
