Bunker Hill Housing Redevelopment Selected for Boston Mass Timber Accelerator

Boston, MA

On Monday, February 13th, the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) and the Boston Society for Architecture (BSA) selected the Bunker Hill Housing Redevelopment as one of three awardees for the second round of the Boston Mass Timber Accelerator. The project will receive a $25,000 grant and technical assistance from WoodWorks to explore the feasibility and embodied carbon reduction potential of using Mass Timber construction.

BSA highlights that Bunker Hill Housing Redevelopment “features a leading team with expertise in sustainable development design, and construction, and a commitment to achieving Boston’s carbon neutral goals.”

As described by Adelaide Grady, Bunker Hill Housing Redevelopment’s Executive Director and LMP Senior Vice President & Partner, the team’s goal from the outset has been to “maximize the project’s resiliency, sustainability, and housing equitability for the greater good,” said Adelaide Grady, Bunker Housing Redevelopment’s Executive Director and LMP Senior Vice President & Partner. “The opportunity to utilize Mass Timber on a public-private project of this scale and impact would serve as a future national case study on how development, construction and sustainability can indeed merge to provide solutions for next generation best practices.”
