Eva White is a first of its kind, deep energy retrofit and internal renovation of a transit-oriented, all-affordable, 102-unit, 6-story, Boston Housing Authority elderly housing community in the South End in Boston. The project is a part of the REALIZE program that seeks to scale net zero ready retrofits on a national level.
The redevelopment includes attaching a new panelized insulated facade system to the exterior walls while adding energy-efficient windows and a new heat pump system. This renovation will significantly reduce the energy burden of the building while drastically improving the living conditions of the current residents.
Eva White is a RAD / Section 18 blend conversion utilizing 4% tax credits and bond financing. A member of the Boston Communities team worked on this project while employed by the developer.
