Boston – Callahan Construction Managers recently announced the completion of The 600 mixed-use project for V10 Development.
Located on the 600 block of Broadway in Everett, the 80,000sf of ground-up new construction is located near public transportation and the Forbes Five-Star Encore Boston Harbor Resort. The 6-story residential complex features 85 residential units ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom units with high-end finishes. Amenities include a restaurant, rooftop deck, commercial space, and 37 parking spaces. The 600 is fully leased, and a ribbon cutting was held with City of Everett officials on April 27.
Callahan was retained to provide pre-construction and construction management services. Two existing buildings on the site were demolished to make room for the new apartment complex. The ground floor was constructed in a podium style and contains the residential lobby, two retail rental areas, mechanical spaces, the loading dock, and parking. Floors two through six are identical wood frame construction and each includes 17 residential units with quartz counters in the bathrooms and kitchens. The roof level has a 4,500sf roof deck area which will include enclosed restrooms, stairs and elevator lobby, and outdoor seating and cooking areas for use by tenants.
The 600 was designed by Context, a collaborative design workshop. The design team sought to embrace Context’s location on the top of the hill, on one of the busiest streets in Everett, making it a prominent building from many different vantage points. The team endeavored to allow the building to stand out while being sympathetic to the surrounding neighborhood. In order to keep from feeling too massive and bulky, Context used cantilevered bays and changes in facade materials to break down the facades into something more consistent with neighborhood residential architecture. Masonry was used at the street level to provide a visually familiar and human scaled pedestrian experience.
The project team for The 600 also includes RJ O’Connell & Associates, civil engineer; H+O Structural Engineering, structural engineer; and MDLA Landscape Architecture, landscape architect.
