About Commonwealth Glenville Apartments

Renovations to 235 occupied, low-incoming residential apartments in 17 buildings. To accommodate the tenants’ needs, the project is being done in multiple phases over nearly 2 years.

The work involved renovating kitchens, bathrooms and common areas, while adding new fire protection to all units and buildings, new site utilities, masonry repointing and a massive storm water recharge system that takes rainwater that once flooded the entire area and converts it back into groundwater.
