Workforce Housing

Workforce Housing

Nantucket, MA

Recognizing the need for additional workforce housing in an active New England community, LDa was hired to design a new housing development. As proposed, our plan includes 64 apartment units totaling 114 bedrooms with a variety of unit types including studios, 1, 2 and 3-bedrooms spread over three separate buildings surrounding a community green.

The scale of the buildings thoughtfully integrates the rich historical fabric that is uniquely New England. Individual entries on many of the first floor units help to create a sense of place and individuality within the larger community. Generous porches serve to ground the buildings and provide a transitional community space between the interior and exterior of the buildings. Key amenities provided are multiple bike sheds, grill and picnic area, climate controlled basement storage, on site management office, electric vehicle charging station, playground, community garden and direct links to the bike path.

Future residents will benefit from the residential character and community-focused elements, encouraging gathering, recreation and ties to the neighborhood.
