Finegold Alexander & Associates

Winner of the Historical Preservation Award from the Massachusetts Historical Commission, the Award for Multifamily Housing from the American Institute of Architects, and the J. Timothy Anderson Awards, Excellence in Historic Rehabilitation from the National Housing & Rehabilitation Association. This nearly two-hundred year old building was once the oldest operating penitentiary in America. Metric restored the abandoned structure, transforming it into 29 luxury condominiums, a gourmet restaurant, and a public museum area. Metric preserved many original details, repairing brick walls in the homes, reusing cell bars as decorative elements, and repurposing granite blocks as an exterior walkway.
