New Atlantic Development specializes in the development of mixed-income housing projects, often re-using abandoned or foreclosed properties to create new housing for low to moderate income families and special needs populations. Recent activity includes the creation of over 200 new and affordable housing units in Boston, in addition to the development of community-oriented retail space and arts and cultural facilities.
New Atlantic has advocated for energy efficiency by challenging its architectural and construction partners to deliver energy efficient designs and installations in projects across Boston including the Uphams Corner Marketplace, Columbia West Apartments, The Roxbury Center for Art, Culture and Trade, and the soon to be completed ArtBlock project in Boston’s South End.
The Corporation’s projects combine various measures to address systems efficiency as well building and systems interaction. The measures implemented primarily addressed space heating, water heating and building envelope improvements. Through four years of investing in energy efficiency improvements with KeySpan, New Atlantic Development’s projects have experienced a 25-30 percent improvement in energy usage and total annual savings of almost $100,000.
