PRA worked with the Lynn Community Development Housing Corporation (LCDHC) to investigate the potential to adaptively re-use the historic Waterworks facility, constructed in 1871-1872, and through the creation of 12 residential condominium units. The design included parking, landscape, and site design.

The twelve residential units, each with an approximate gross floor area of 1,100 to 1,400 square feet, would have each had two bedrooms and two baths, a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining space, laundry facilities and general storage.  The design incorporated the existing building's distinctive characteristics, including generous ceiling heights and the large, oversized windows that would have provided plentiful natural light to each unit.
