Leyland Community is a 43-unit building, developed by Dorchester Bay Economic Development Corporation and Hebrew SeniorLife, and will be the first senior affordable housing project in Upham’s Corner. The 38,000 sq.ft. mixed-use development received PHIUS+ 2018 CORE design certification in November 2021 and is expected to receive final certification in 2024 after the rooftop PV system becomes operational. The podium construction features R-26 metal stud walls on the first floor and R-30 wood stud walls on the upper floors as well as high-performance uPVC fixed and tilt-turn windows. For each apartment, the high efficiency rooftop Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) continuously delivers fresh air to the living area and bedroom(s) while a ducted vertical Fan Coil Unit (FCU), as part of the Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system with heat recovery, heats/cools the entire unit.
