Castle Square, WinnDevelopment to Redevelop 102-Unit Senior Housing Community in South End.
BOSTON — Castle Square Tenants Organization and WinnDevelopment have been selected by the Boston Housing Authority to redevelop the Eva White Apartments, a 102-unit, low-income senior housing community at 440 Tremont St. in Boston’s South End. The 50-year-old, seven-story building includes 34 studio, 57 one-bedroom and 11 two-bedroom affordable apartments for seniors. As the majority owner, Castle Square will deliver programs and services to Eva White residents and will partner with WinnDevelopment on a two-year renovation project to upgrade apartment kitchens and baths as well as community spaces, mechanical systems and life-safety systems. A final project budget for renovations has not been set. Castle Square and WinnDevelopment first worked together in 1987 to purchase and renovate the 500-unit Castle Square Apartments in South End. The $50 million rehabilitation achieved a LEED Platinum rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.
