“The Missing Middle”—creating multi-family, workforce housing in an historic neighborhood.

Sea Captains’ Row is an historic street in Hyannis that maintains an important link from downtown to the inner harbor. Union worked with CapeBuilt Homes to redevelop a large section of the neighborhood which now provides condominium ownership and rental opportunities within a collection of new apartment buildings. This new housing supports a growing community on Cape Cod who want to live near their places of employment and within walking distance of commercial and recreational amenities. Sponsored by the Cape Cod Young Professionals organization, the project included gathering direct feedback from the community.

The new buildings succeed in capturing the character and details of the adjacent historic row of houses that originally belonged to mid-1800s sea captains. This is especially noteworthy considering most of the new buildings were constructed using modular building systems in order to meet project requirements.
