Fisherman’s Watch Condominiums

Swampscott, MA – After a lengthy approval process, and the demolition of an abandoned 100,000sf school building, Groom Construction of Salem is well underway with the construction of a new 60,000sf luxury condominium project for owner Fisherman’s Watch Condominiums, LLC.

Fisherman’s Watch … in progress

The five-story building is being constructed at the highest point in Swampscott, with many of the units commanding sweeping ocean views of Swampscott, Nahant, and the Boston skyline.

The developer and Groom Construction teamed up with Grazado-Velleco Architects of Marblehead on the design of the project and with LDA Architects of Cambridge on the interiors.

The building will have 28 luxury condominium units that range in size from 1,400sf to over 2,300sf for the larger of the two-story penthouses.

The building will boast underground parking, a dramatic fifth-floor club room, and an exercise room that will allow all residents to take advantage of what is being touted by the developer as “the best view on the North Shore.”

In addition, the first-floor units will all have large private patios and gardens, and the developer is planning a walking trail that encircles the 2-acre site.

In doing so, a concept was created that would take every opportunity to design and construct a building that would not only replace the old abandoned school building but would also fit comfortably into a residential neighborhood dominated primarily by one- and two-family homes.

The concept was to step the building from the road, on several levels, in order to visually reduce the mass of the building. Hip roofs and shingle styles were also incorporated that are in keeping with the surrounding and period architecture.
