Originally constructed in 1925 as a luxury hotel, The Winthrop was on the verge of failure in 2015 after prior ownership filed for bankruptcy. With the support of the local community, Redwood developed a comprehensive, historically significant preservation and revitalization plan that preserved the former hotel as high-quality affordable housing. The redevelopment included the restoration of historic artifacts, new historically compatible windows, the replacement of failing systems, seismic upgrades, elevator modernizations, security improvements, full unit renovations, and an all-inclusive modernization of common areas, including the historic lobby and Crystal Ballroom. Additionally, new service coordination programs were established to support resident needs.
