Lincoln-Eliot Elementary and NECP (Preschool) Project

  • Lincoln-Eliot Elementary School

    The Lincoln-Eliot School project at 150 Jackson Road had been progressing through the feasibility phase when it was put on hold due to the financial impact of COVID-19. This project has now been restarted and is currently anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2025. 

    Take a 3-D tour of a few spaces within the new Lincoln-Eliot School! Our design team at Arrowstreet is narrating, so turn your volume up as they walk you through. Here's the link to the video: Lincoln-Eliot 3-D virtual walk-through of new building

    The renovation of the building at 687 Watertown St. is completed. Students and staff moved into the building in January 2023. Details on the project progression and completion can be found on the website linked on this page.

Update - November 9, 2021

  • On November 9, 2021, the Lincoln-Eliot School Building Committee voted unanimously to focus on addition and renovation options for the site at 150 Jackson Road. There were several reasons why this approach was approved, including:
    • The addition and renovation options can meet and exceed the school program
    • Provide a finished product comparable to the Angier, Zervas, and Cabot School projects
    • Preserve a historic facility
    • Avoids delays in the project schedule
    • Are superior from an embodied carbon and environmental perspective
    • Leverage the financial value of the existing facility to yield a project that is ~$14M less expensive than the new construction options.

    The Building Committee has not yet a preferred addition/renovation option. The committee will be working together to find the best possible option for the building and the site in the coming months. Here is the access information for the recording of the meeting from last night.
