Melrose, MA – A new luxury apartment building recently opened in one of Boston’s fastest growing suburbs, Melrose. 2 Washington, located approximately seven miles north of downtown Boston, includes 94 luxury units as well as a 24-hour fitness center, a roof deck, a clubroom with a genius bar, a shuffle board table, and a fireplace, as well as outdoor grills and a fire pit according to developer, Wood Partners.
“2 Washington is a unique community where residents are offered the perfect blend of city access, high-end finishes, and outdoor tranquility,” said Carolyn Zern, vice president of development at Wood Partners. “By leveraging an integrated development approach, we were able to combine luxury amenities, superior design, and a community feel all in close proximity to central Boston, making it an ideal location for anyone from singles to young families looking for a balanced lifestyle. We want residents to feel pampered by the spaces we have created while knowing that they can walk out their door and be downtown or on a hiking trail in minutes.”
The Boston suburb of Melrose, where 2 Washington is located, was recently ranked the No. 1 hottest zip code in the nation by Relator.com. 2 Washington is a short walk to the MBTA Oak Grove T station on the Orange Line, just six stops outside of central Boston, and three stops from Assembly Row, a lifestyle center in Somerville which houses everything from a Legoland and a movie theater to restaurants and shopping.
In addition to providing residents with the ease of public transportation and access to the heart of downtown Boston, 2 Washington is located just a few blocks away from the Middlesex Fells Reservation, a massive 2,000+ acre state park offering hiking and biking trails and a boating pond. Residents also have access to restaurants and retailers in downtown Melrose only 1.25 miles away from 2 Washington.
“Melrose is a special town,” said Zern. “While its proximity to Boston and both the Orange Line and commuter rail is a huge draw, Melrose attracts residents because it truly feels like a small-town community. Wood Partners is thrilled to continue our relationship with Melrose and to be a part of the fabric of the neighborhood.”
