The property was recently enhanced. GHA replaced 16 older units with two, new two-story apartment buildings each containing eight units. The new apartments are twice the size of those they replaced, have modern kitchens and baths and are built for energy efficiency through the use of passive house design principles. This includes geo-thermal heating and cooling, solar roofing, heavy insulation, triple-glazed windows and LED lighting. They are the future of what moderate affordable housing will look like.

It is located within walking distance of the Groton Senior Center, the Groton Library and is on a bus route.
