Cambridge, MA – Nauset Construction recently completed Point 262, a LEED Silver pre-certified, luxury condominium development that provides 55 one-and-two bedroom units and is located within walking distance of Kendall Square and Mass General Hospital, and adjacent to Twin City Plaza, a 270,000sf grocery-anchored retail center.
Point 262 received a walkability score of 84, a transit score of 87, and a bike score of 91 (Biker’s Paradise) from WalkScore, a provider of neighborhood data to the real estate industry.
The seven-story, 84,000sf complex was constructed at 262 Monsignor O’Brien Highway (formerly home to Lechmere Auto Wash Centers), a tight, zero-lot line urban infill site. Designed by Somerville-based Khalsa Design, Inc. (KDI), the units feature gray glazed birch flooring, LED fixtures, high efficiency HVAC, and balconies or terraces for each unit. Each kitchen includes quartz counters and stainless steel appliances.
The first floor is comprised of bicycle storage spaces, the building lobby, community space and a workout area. There are two common roof decks with views of Boston and Cambridge and spaces to entertain. The 20 one-bedroom units average 840sf per unit and the 35 two-bedroom units average 1,050sf per unit. Many of the condominiums were pre-sold prior to construction, with six units remaining on the market at press time.
