The award-winning Maverick Landing project – the first LEED® Certified affordable development in New England – involved the complete renovation of the nine-acre Maverick Garden housing development. The project involved replacing the original building with 426 housing units in multiple buildings, restoring the historic neighborhood street pattern, and reconnecting the site to the surrounding community. The renovations occurred over three phases, allowing tenants to remain onsite during construction. Nitsch Engineering provided land surveying services, including existing conditions, property line, and layout surveys; as well as civil engineering services, including site utility design, BWSC permitting, Boston Conservation Commission permitting, NPDES permitting, and Chapter 91 permitting. Maverick Landing serves as a model for future green affordable housing projects, and won the 2004 Governor’s Smart Growth Leadership Award.
