The guide to residential buildings is designed to help those seeking one-floor living in a large multi-family building in Brookline. We focus on buildings with elevators because they may entirely eliminate the need for residents to climb stairs. Covering both condominium and rental buildings, the guide provides information on over 120 buildings. In every case, the guide provides basic information such as building location, number of floors, number of units, and number of bedrooms.
