Union worked with Cape View Development to design a mixed-income cottage community clustered around a common green in Brewster, Massachusetts. The building types include two carriage house units, 22 detached cottages, and four cottage duplexes. Of the 9.5-acre site, two-thirds are preserved open space.

The project was developed under the Massachusetts 40B state statute for affordable housing development and is admired by the local community.

Landscaping is used throughout the cottage community for both beauty and function. Front plantings add curb appeal while bioretention basins help with stormwater management for the neighborhood.
