Project Overview

DREAM Collaborative was commission by JPNDC to design 8 units of affordable homeownership housing spanning several parcels purchased from MassDOT. The design features an efficient, contemporary layout with select traditional exterior details that complement the existing neighborhood context. The design team is taking advantage of the wood-frame construction style to study alternative construction methods such as prefabricated wall systems. JPNDC also used this project to introduce a new model with two upper-floor ownership units each include a first floor investment rental unit.

“DREAM Collaborative was a joy to work with on this important project for JPNDC and for the Jamaica Plain neighborhood. The team was always fully engaged, resourceful and solution-driven on all aspects of architectural services for the project.”
