Description

The Moshassuck Square Apartments, designed by architect William D. Warner and constructed in 1972, were a key element in the revitalization of Randall Square. The apartments are built in rows of three and four story cast-stone-trimmed brick buildings, drawing inspiration from the mid-19th century industrial buildings that once stood in this area.
