Maverick Landing has been recognized nationally for what was accomplished in a few short years. The development won the 2009 I. Donald Terner Prize, which recognizes successful and innovative affordable housing projects and their leadership teams.
Architects and planners design the multi-block development which implemented mid-rise to low-rise structures to accommodate various living arrangements from elderly apartments to market-rate townhouses.
A transit-oriented development, Maverick Landing, which is Massachusetts’ first green, affordable multi-family housing development, adhering to “healthy homes” principles and achieving LEED certification, is a model for projects funded through the Federal Housing and Urban Development HOPE VI program.
The project restored historic street patterns and reconnects residents with the surrounding community. The site offers public open spaces including a park at one corner of the development, a crescent shape of townhouses that invites the public waterfront park into the development and broad walkways that link a community center with housing on all sides.
