In 2004, Commonwealth Land Trust acquired Windsor House, a sixty-nine unit property in Lawrence, MA. Windsor House has single room occupancy units as well as efficiencies with private kitchens. Located in one of Lawrence’s most bustling thoroughfares, Windsor House provides residents with easy access to shops, parks, medical centers, public transportation, and recreation areas. Many units are reserved for formerly homeless and disabled individuals who receive on-site case management services.


In 2010, CLT received a 2.5 million dollar grant to renovate Windsor House. Click here to learn more about the Windsor House Construction project.
