Lyman School Apartments
East Boston, MA
Kaplan recently began renovations for the Lyman School Apartments, an affordable apartment community located in East Boston. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2014.
The project features interior and exterior renovations to an historic red-brick structure that was originally built in 1912 as the Theodore Lyman School. The 40,000 SF, five-story building was converted to elderly housing in the 1980s. The new renovation will create a mix of 45 rent-assisted studios and one-bedroom apartments, office space, common amenities, and community space. It will include the modification and rehabilitation of occupied space, including the conversion and upgrade of five units to handicapped accessible units. Other project details include masonry restoration, installation of all new windows, new kitchens and flooring, painting, extending sprinkler systems, installation of central air conditioning, updates to code, and updating compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), including an exterior ramp and an interior lift. The project is slated to be completed by December 2016.
- We chose Kaplan Construction because they were very knowledgeable, experienced and committed to making things work. It was an easy decision on our end. It was a great fit - they were patient, especially vis-à-vis the budget, and they had the depth of experience with CDCs we were looking for in a construction management firm .Sal ColomboDevelopment ManagerEast Boston Community Development Corporation
