Project Description

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 sitework, carpentry and millwork, which helped control the cost and quality of the work.
