DREAM’s skilled team has really helped us reimagine what well-designed housing can do to improve the quality of life for our residents.
The Kenzi is the next phase of a LEED ND master plan to transform a former MBTA bus yard into a thriving mixed-use, mixed-income community. This Passive House, five-story, 50-unit development pushes the design stereotypes of affordable housing and 55+ living with fresh, engaging design both inside and out. A mix of 1- and 2-bedroom units will provide a high-quality, accessible option for neighborhood residents to age in place in their own community while also leaving a light carbon footprint.
The Kenzi is the first permitted Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) for emergency power over 4-stories in the City of Boston. The project will include a 1,200 sf community art gallery space on the ground floor, shared meeting space, cafe, resident garden, a private terrace and a public plaza.
