Munroe Street Project: 259 residential units plus ground level commercial space in downtown Lynn. As we gear up for a ground breaking later this year we are going to post more renderings and introduce our team involved in making this project a reality. First up is our architectural team. DMS Design was the second group of people to know this project was a possibility and their vision for this project quite possibly trumped our own. This is our 3rd consecutive building with DMS. As we grow they are growing with us and we couldn’t be happier to have Dan and his team run point.
