BOSTON — The grand reopening has been held for Casa Maria Apartments, an 85-unit apartment building located at 130 Endicott St. in the North End neighborhood of Boston, after an extensive rehabilitation. The six-story building was originally constructed by The Community Builders (TCB) in 1979 to provide Section 8 subsidized housing to seniors; the company continues to operate the facility. Construction included renovations to the existing community kitchen and the construction of a second kitchen; the addition of stand-up, walk-in showers in unit bathrooms; new energy-efficient appliances; an expansion to the lobby; new windows, heating systems and elevators; a new community room; and the construction of a handicap-accessible rooftop deck. TCB’s limited partner investors in the renovation were Red Capital Group and Nationwide Insurance Co. Additional assistance was provided by MassHousing and low-income tax credits provided by the Massachusetts Department of Housing & Community Development. The general contractor for the project was CWC Builders; Tise Design Associates served as project architect.
