Housing Transformation

Dellbrook | JKS is applying its client-focused philosophy to the renovation of a senior housing development in Boston’s Brighton neighborhood.

The company is the general contractor for the $33.9 million renewal of the Genesis House, owned and managed by Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly, a nonprofit housing agency. Work on the project began in July 2016 and the renovation is slated for completion in June. The project architect is Dietz & Company Architects of Springfield, Mass.

The project involves renovating 170,000 total square feet in the complex’s two mid-rise buildings. Genesis House is comprised of a six-story building and an eight-story building. Combined, the buildings have 209 units including 189 one-bedroom and 20 two-bedroom units. 

The electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems in each unit will be replaced, and all finishes will be upgraded. In addition, 30 units will become wheelchair accessible.

New windows and doors will also be placed throughout the facility, and a new roof and elevators will be installed. The project also includes renovating an adult daycare facility, an art room and other common areas.

The renovation will transform the 1970s-era buildings into modern living spaces. “It was time for a renovation to happen,” Barry says.
