Brookline, MA

86 Dummer Street features 32 new units of affordable rental housing for the Brookline Housing Authority.  The project was the largest such development in Brookline in over 35 years.

The energy-efficient, wood-frame building was built above a new, underground parking garage and forms a quadrangle with the existing Trustman Apartments.  The new layout features an accessible courtyard that includes landscaped green space, play structures and a basketball court. Low-income families, senior citizens and people with disabilities enjoy the spacious one, two and three-bedroom units, many with a lovely view of the Boston skyline.

Colantonio self-performed the site work, carpentry and millwork, which helped control the cost and quality of the work.
