Putnam Gardens Renovation Project Reaches New Milestone

Waltham, Mass. (December 22, 2016) – CTA Construction Managers announced today that it has completed the fourth of ten phases of the Rental Assistance Demonstration revitalization project of Putnam Gardens in Cambridge, MA.

Located in the Riverside neighborhood of Cambridge, Putnam Gardens is an affordable housing community that features 122 units in three buildings. It is owned by the Cambridge Housing Authority. To date, CTA Construction has completed about 29 percent of the project.

“We’re pleased to partner with the Cambridge Housing Authority on this important project to update and transform Putnam Gardens,” said Paul DuRoss, a project executive at CTA Construction. “The work we are doing will dramatically enhance the interior livings spaces and improve amenities for local individuals and families who reside at this community.”

The Rental Assistance Demonstration work at Putnam Gardens includes phased renovations of apartments, including new appliances and cabinets in kitchens, new finishes and fixtures in bathrooms, additional upgrades to wheelchair accessible units, new washing machines, repainting of units, exterior repairs to masonry, and upgrades to the boiler plant, fire alarm and sprinkler systems.
