The 1927 former Roosevelt School, designed by John Calvin Stevens, has been converted into one- and two-bedroom condominium units that take advantage of the high ceilings and oversized windows of the historic building. The units are designed to provide single-level living in the Meetinghouse Hill neighborhood.
The retrofit aims for a high-performance, energy-efficient building while preserving the historic school. The property, long a public space, has been kept open, with a public walkway through the grounds.
Building amenities include covered parking, an elevator, a fitness center, and indoor storage.
