Bruner/Cott is performing an occupied renovation of two 1970s-era apartment buildings at 808-812 Memorial Drive. Situated along the Charles River, the buildings house 300 mixed-income apartment units of varying sizes, approximately 38,000 sf of commercial space, and five levels of parking. The project aims to improve tenant comfort and sense of security, while also strengthening the residential community and identity.
Exterior renovations include new insulated cladding and window systems to refresh the appearance of the building and support mechanical system upgrades. The site will also receive landscaping updates to improve circulation and accessibility, including new surface materials, benches, and lighting.
On the inside, common spaces such as the community room, activity room, and computer lab will be reconfigured to better serve its users. Lobbies, elevators, and corridors will also be updated with modern and vibrant finishes, flooring, lighting and signage, in addition to select interior unit renovations.
