Janus Highlands

The Janus Highland Apartments, offering a total of 41 one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom units, are located on three parcels within the Box District on the sites of the former Janus Fabrications Company and the Atlas Bedding factory and a vacant lot on Marlboro Street.

These are two- and three-story apartment buildings that have the rhythm and feel of traditional Chelsea architecture with a fresh, very attractive look. Janus Highland Apartments were designed by the award-winning firm Icon architecture, and are managed by WinnResidential, providing professional management with a resident-centered perspective. All units are affordable to households with incomes at or below 60% of area median income, and some units are supported by project-based rental assistance.
