Affordable Housing Rehabilitation for CSNDC, Boston
Sorensen Partners is Architect for the rehabilitation of fifty-nine units of affordable housing in the Dorchester and Mattapan neighborhoods of Boston, MA for CSNDC (Codman Square Neighborhood Development Corporation). The Walando Homes development includes six masonry structures dating from the late nineteenth century and the 1960s, on two sites.
As Architect for the project, Sorensen Partners is designing site, public space, and kitchen and bath improvements, and adding and improving laundry and mechanical rooms. We are coordinating and managing the design and installation of new plumbing, fire protection, plumbing, and electrical systems with our Northeast-based AE team of CSE (Structural Engineer); DTC (MEP & FP Engineers); and DeVellis Zrein (Civil Engineer & Landscape Architect).

Enterprise Community Partners’ involvement has allowed us to undertake a Health Action Plan at Waldeck to study design and behavioral measures, including meeting with residents in charette format, and collaborating with doctors from Boston Medical Center to set the agenda for health measures. Also funded by Enterprise, via a Pre-Development Green Grant, we are working with residents at Orlando to determine sustainability measures for the property.
