Lyman Terrace Project
Lyman Terrace is one of the oldest public housing developments in Massachusetts. Built in 1939, the original master plan was based on the superblock concept of the era that eliminated through streets and grouped the buildings around courtyards and pedestrian ways. It consisted of it 18 two-story brick buildings that occupy three city blocks.
In 2016, Phase 1 of the Lyman Terrace revitalization project kicked off. This included renovating 88 units and introducing a new roadway through the property. The project is now in phase 2 focused on renovating the remaining 76 units, building a second roadway and building a new office.
At AEL, we are passionate about the affordable housing market. While the creation of new housing options is important, it’s also vital to maintain what already exists. We are proud to be a part of this project and look forward to seeing its completion.
