Offshoots, Inc. developed the landscape plan for this multi-family affordable senior housing project in Revere. The project includes a new streetscape and an urban coutyard that maximizes programmable community space in a very small footprint. Cafe tables and a space for gatherings are created within a planted perimeter. Custom benches and a double-sided fence provide architectural interest while screening adjacent non-desirable views. The courtyard maximizes sun exposure and provides seasonal interest for residents with low maintenance plants.

Sustainability features include xeriscape (low water use) plantings to limit longterm water consumption and a phytoremediation buffer of hybrid poplars along the parking lot to mitigate potential petroleum contamination from the adjacent auto-repair shop.
