Renovation of this 500-unit development helped to preserve low-income housing in Boston's South End. Improvements to the 26 buildings included physical and mechanical repair including roof replacement, replacement of hot water boilers, window replacement, installation of energy-saving light fixtures, exterior lighting upgrade, lobby makeover, interior and exterior painting, new appliances and restructured stairwells. Castle Square’s 14-acre site includes 36,000 square feet of commercial space and surface parking for 350 cars.

Castle Square was redeveloped by a joint venture between Winn Development Company and the Castle Square Tenants Organization, which advocates for and organizes programs and services for the community. The Tenants Organization also plays an active role in the management of the buildings, and anticipates acquiring ownership of Castle Square when the tax-credit compliance period is complete.
