Southwest: Tiber Island and Carrollsburg Square

As part of the urban renewal efforts in Southwest during the 1960s, the Redevelopment Land Agency selected a design for a mix of middle-class housing in the form of high-rise buildings and townhomes connected by a web of open spaces by the local modern architectural firm of Keyes, Lethbridge and Condon. The result: Tiber Island and the Carrollsburg Square Condos. Keyes, Lethbridge and Condon won an American Institute of Architects award in 1966 for Tiber Island. Here are some of the homes for sale in the communities:
