Jefferson Park Federal Modernization

Jefferson Park Federal is a federally-assisted family development located off Rindge Avenue in North Cambridge adjacent to Jefferson Park State. The development was originally constructed in 1952 and had its last major modernization in 1987. The development includes seven four-story concrete frame masonry buildings and one six-story mid-rise building totaling 175 family apartments.

BWA Architecture (BWA), a Boston architecture firm, is the designer for the modernization of Jefferson Park Federal. After completing an Existing Conditions Assessment which found that the units and buildings were in poor condition, BWA studied various renovation and reconstruction options ultimately recommending a reconstruction option to CHA and its residents. BWA will finalize the schematic design for the project in early 2021 and present design plans to the residents, neighbors and the City of Cambridge representatives. Final construction documents will then be prepared with the goal of starting construction in Spring 2022.

Key design and meeting documents can be found below.
