Winslow Architects Arlington Ma 50 York rendering

Winslow Architect Inc. was selected by Just-A-Start Corporation of Cambridge to design a new 16 unit building at 50 York Street in Cambridge to replace the building destroyed by the massive Cambridge fire in December 2016. Showing what can happen when the private sector and public sector joint forces, the building was designed, approved by the City and State, and awarded the necessary funding in a period of just 9 months. Winslow Architects designed a building that provided 16 units of affordable housing in a contextually designed building type that broke the larger single building into a triple decker scale reflective of the character of the surrounding close-knit neighborhood of Cambridge. The building will be constructed by NEI Construction Co. and managed by Maloney Properties.
