Case Studies

St. Gabriel’s St. Gabriel’s

The project site is an approximately 11.8-acre parcel on Washington Street, in Brighton, MA. The proposed project will feature the rehabilitated, historic St. Gabriel’s Monastery and Church, along with four new residential buildings, ranging in height from three stories to six stories at the rear of the site overlooking Brighton High School and St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.

The project proposes to provide approximately 600 units of privately owned and operated residences and condominiums to serve young professionals, families, graduate students and others engaged in teaching, training and research in a wide variety of professions in the area.

The project has been designed as an extensively-landscaped neighborhood consisting of a mix of new and renovated structures. Important existing features will be retained and restored, including the currently-abandoned Monastery and Church. Public pedestrian connections throughout the site will be enhanced with new sidewalks, benches, and street lights, and will include new public vistas overlooking the city.

The pedestrian, bike and transit-friendly project site is located approximately 1,500 feet from the Washington Street stop of the MBTA Green line, and is steps from Brighton Center. The project also plans robust shuttle bus connections to nearby universities and research areas.
