The Architectural Team
Cobbet Hill Apartments is a 117 unit affordable housing development in Lynn, Massachusetts. Originally built in the 1930’s, the former Cobbet Hill School and Lynn Technical School was converted to apartments in 1988.
The project included the replacement of dwelling unit HVAC and life safety systems as well as new kitchen and bathroom finishes. The common areas where completely overhauled with new finishes, lighting, life safety and mechanical systems. The building envelope was restored with new windows, masonry restoration and membrane roofing. A new management office, community space and fitness area was constructed within the area partially occupied by the original gymnasium.
