Project Description

Oceanview is a 96 unit senior housing residence offering independent, assisted and alzheimer’s care.

The historic restoration of the Oceanview won a historic preservation award from the Massachusetts Historical Commission. 11 days prior to closing on the construction financing, OceanView was almost destroyed when a fire gutted the existing structures. The development team was able to brace and shore the exterior walls to retain the historic tax credits. We also preserved the HUD construction funding commitment by adjusting the financing, design and construction documents to close with HUD  financing 45 days after the fire.

The project team included Keith Construction, EHA Architects, Commonweal Collaborative, Charles River Mortgage, Luberschane Associates and Rene Megnier Structural Engineers.
