Everett, MA – The Batch Yard, a 328-unit luxury loft-style apartment community in Everett, held a grand opening party in October to celebrate the successful opening of the development and to recognize the groups that worked to bring the project to completion.
Development team members attending the event included representatives of French Neshamkin Architects; Post Road Residential, owner/developer; Metric Construction and Plumb House, Inc., construction managers; and The Bozzuto Group, property manager.
Grand opening guests also included Greg Bialecki, Secretary of Housing and Economic Development for the State of Massachusetts, numerous local dignitaries, current residents, and prospective tenants.
As a restoration of the former Charleston Chew Candy Factory near the intersection of Route 99 and Route 16, the development team completely renovated the old factory structure, resulting in an updated and luxurious feel with nods to the building’s history, such as the creative use of existing building structures thoughtfully matched with modern design and conveniences.
Attendees were invited to tour a model unit and explore the large community common areas and the expansive rooftop lounge. Of special interest were some of the Batch Yard’s character-rich details and finishes, including wood paneling and flooring that was reclaimed and remilled from the site, hand-sculpted Charleston Chew metal door handles, artwork by well-known New England artists, a sophisticated library complete with a collection of cocktail shakers, and an inviting lobby fireplace.
