National Fannie Mae Maxwell Award for Excellence Winner
Completed in 2005, Acushnet Commons is the conversion and adaptive re-use of the former Kinyon-Campbell School into 12 family-sized affordable apartments, program space for a local non-profit service provider, and a community center. A long-vacant building in a struggling neighborhood of New Bedford, Acushnet Commons has helped launch revitalization efforts in this community in addition to providing quality affordable housing for low-income families. A great example of a mixed-use project, we were able to create office space for NorthStar Learning Centers, a leading service provider, as well as a community room. NorthStar Leaning Centers’ on-site office space allows them to provide a wide range of programs and services to residents as well as others within the community.
