Financial and the Boston Housing
Authority. The project is a residential cornerstone of the
revitalized East Boston waterfront community with its 426 units out of
the planned 1200 new housing units. The development has a variety of housing
types, including wood framed town houses, duplexes with individual entries
and steel framed midrise appartment buildings.
The Phase one Mid-rise Building consists of 119 rental
units and underground parking. It is framed in structural
steel, lateral stability is achieved by use of concentric
steel braced frames. The six story building is clad in
masonry and metal panels. Maverick will be the first LEED-Certified mixed-income
multi development in the Commonwealth. Renewable
energy systems were incorporated into the project suchas the roof-mounted
solar photovoltaic panel system will provide electricity for common areas.
The panel has been incorporated into the building as a design feature.

material was part of the specifications.
