The Distillery in South Boston is one of the first multifamily Passive House buildings in New England, and the first in Massachusetts, which provides 65 sustainable new units to the area. The first phase includes 28 units, which will later expand to the total of 65 units. Passive House is the leading standard for energy-saving construction in the world—offering heating energy savings of 80% over conventional construction. The new building supports and enhances an existing, vibrant artist and business community created in a historic distillery mill. The new development adds additional artist live/work loft spaces, commercial/retail space, a community roof top garden and deck space, two stories of parking, a large shared courtyard, and a small grocery, café, and gallery.
