Capitol Square Apartments: How to Apply

As we transition from summer to fall, you will begin to notice quite a few changes around Capitol Square Apartments. The Capitol Square team is working to close our construction loan so the renovation can begin. Within weeks, you will all begin to notice workers on site and hear the sounds of the transformation of this historic property.

Anyone who is interested in applying for an apartment at Capitol Square can obtain an application at Housing Corporation of Arlington offices, the Robbins Library in Arlington Center or Peabody Properties in Braintree. The application is also available online. You must complete a new application even if you are currently on HCA’s waiting list.

Some more dates to remember: On September 13, we will conduct infor­mational sessions to explain the lottery process. Those will be held at 4 PM and 6 PM on the first floor of the Arlington Senior Center at 27 Maple Street in Arlington Center. We will accept applications until October 31. Then, on November 7 at 2 PM, we will conduct the lottery on the first floor of the Arlington Senior Center. Peabody Properties will process applications selected on that date and notify the applicants. If there are not enough qualifying applicants identified from the initial lottery, additional applications will be drawn until all the apartments are leased.

We are very excited about the progress we’re making at Capitol Square--Stay tuned for more updates!
