Charlestown, MA – As development progresses on Berkeley Investments’ The Graphic in Charlestown, the company celebrated the construction’s headway by making a substantial $25,000.00 donation to The Fund for Parks & Recreation in Boston. The Fund, managed by Boston Parks & Recreation, has earmarked the donation specifically for The Ryan Playground, which is just blocks away from The Graphic.

Cathy Reese, president of the Charlestown Little League, which exclusively uses The Ryan Playground, recently accepted the donation at the annual end of season banquet where she said, “the League is incredibly grateful for this donation which will improve the field and baseball diamond.  On behalf of the 200 Little Leaguers in Charlestown, we extend our gratitude to Berkeley Investments and Boston Parks & Recreation for enhancing the community we live and play in.”

With a contemporary design that celebrates Sullivan Square’s industrial heritage, Berkeley Investments’ latest transit-oriented project – The Graphic – will bring to Charlestown a total of 171 apartment units, approximately 5,000sf of retail/restaurant space and 113 parking spaces.

The project is an adaptive reuse of the Graphic Arts Finishers Building and will feature loft-style apartments, and will also offer residents a lounge, club room, game room, and bike storage facilities, as well as onsite management offices. A new four-story building will replace the building currently at 572 Rutherford Avenue and will comprise approximately 125 of the apartments above 97 parking spaces.  This new construction, which will seek LEED Gold certification, will offer fitness facilities, a private court yard for residents and a roof deck with stunning skyline views of Charlestown and Boston.

The Graphic, located across the street from the MBTA’s Sullivan Square Orange line and a short distance to I-93, is expected to welcome residents by the end of 2018.  The property is located at 32 Cambridge Street in Charlestown.
