Everett, MA – Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC (Greystar) celebrated the groundbreaking of 85 Boston Street in Everett alongside Everett Mayor, Carlo DeMaria; State Senator Sal DiDomenico; State Representative Joseph McGonagle; and Alfred Wojciechowski, a principal with CBT Architects.
The project is a joint venture between Greystar and Cigna Investment Management. Greystar will perform construction management for the project.
The 5.9-acre site will be developed with 650 new apartments across two six-story buildings with 33 affordable on-site units. The groundbreaking sets the stage for the first building, The Mason, comprised of 330 rental units and on-site parking for approximately 400 cars.
Designed by CBT Architects, The Mason will activate the building’s streetscape for residents and neighbors. Approximately 5,000sf of retail plus a variety of amenity uses will line the building’s frontage along Vale Street, while a raised bike lane with a public bike share station, new sidewalks, and landscaping all contribute to the enhancement of the pedestrian thoroughfare.
For building residents, on-site amenities include a courtyard with a pool and grilling stations, individual and collaborative spaces to support remote working, a fitness center with a studio room for classes, dining and lounge areas, a pet-friendly park, and a community room that can host private and public community events.
