Designed in response to its Gateway site, Kendrick Place rests at the northernmost end of downtown Amherst, Massachusetts, marking the boundary between the city’s commercial district and the University of Massachusetts campus. Kendrick Place, a privately developed mixed-use student housing project, acts as a link between the university and downtown.

Holst was the Design Architect for this project in conjunction with DiMella Shaffer as the Architect-of-Record.
