Nehemiah Homes and Family Life Center
The team at New Atlantic is proud and excited to announce a new partnership with the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Dorchester to develop affordable rental homes on land adjacent to the Church on Humboldt Avenue and Waumbeck Streets. The project will involve the demolition of the dilapidated building located at 157 Humboldt Avenue and the new construction of approximately 20 homes to be set aside for individuals and families earning below 60% and 30% of area median income. The project will also include a Family Life Center, which will provide supportive services to the residents of the property as well as the community. The goals for this project include the design and construction of an attractive and sustainable building that adds to the stability and character of the neighborhood; providing resources and support for the ongoing and future success of the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church and its congregants; maximizing participation by local minority and women-owned businesses; and the inclusion of services to support the needs of the residents and community.

New Atlantic Partners with Dream Development

New Atlantic Development and DREAM Development submitted a joint proposal to redevelop 2147 Washington Street in Dudley Square, Roxbury. Our proposal calls for a mixed-use, mixed income development including 74 total residential units of varying affordability to be marketed to artists and creative professionals, 7 artist work studios, a shared workspace, a new 80-seat restaurant/cafe space for Haley House, a public courtyard gathering space, community retail and more. 70 of the 74 units will be affordable for households earning between 0% and 100% of Area Median Income, with the majority being below 60%. The property would offer both rental and homeownership opportunities. Between the live/work spaces, the work studios and shared workspace, the project aims to support not only affordable homeowners and renters, but sole proprietors and small businesses as well. The architect for the project is DREAM Collaborative, an affiliate of DREAM Development. The proposal was submitted in response to a Request for Proposals issued by the City of Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development.

New Atlantic Submits Proposal for Zero Carbon Footprint Housing in Roxbury

New Atlantic Submits Proposal for Zero Carbon Footprint Housing in Roxbury

In response to an RFP issued by the Department of Neighborhood Development, New Atlantic is proposing a new 18-unit condominium project at 273-287 Highland Street in Roxbury. Working with Utile, the project architect, the proposed project will exceed all energy codes and will actually produce more energy on an annual basis than it consumes.

Named Highland Yard, the project is designed to be durable, energy-efficient, and resource-conserving. The building addresses the specific needs of Boston’s climate: it keeps heat in and cold temperatures out, lets the sunlight in during the winter, and promotes cross-ventilation and good shading during the summer. However, to surpass the target of net-zero energy, a climate-responsive design must take additional measures to optimize envelope performance, building systems efficiency, and renewable energy production.

For this reason, the project has adopted the guidelines of the PHIUS+ 2015 Passive House standard. By designing to this standard, heating and cooling demands will be kept so low that space conditioning systems can be kept simple and small, and overall operational energy use will be minimal. As a result, the building will be able to produce more energy than it consumes after the integration of a renewable solar photovoltaic system.
