This project received the prestigious "Fannie Mae Design Award". When Vertec began building the Catherine H. Gallagher Cooperative Housing project in Boston's Mission Hill neighborhood, this 34 unit city-owned lots had been vacant for over 40 years. Today, these attractive buildings provide affordable housing to a diverse group of residents in seven affordable housing facilities, including two-and three-family houses and a 20-unit apartment building. The first two stories of the facade is a red water struck brick featuring ornamental pre-cast work. The upper floors have a pre-finished hardy-plank siding with wood panels and trim are used throughout. The apartment building features an attractive architectural steel drive-through arch that leads to a rear parking area.
