Salem, MA – Urban Spaces and Diamond/Sinacori celebrated the opening of BRIX, a mixed-use condominium development in downtown Salem.
Located at 65 Washington St., the complexed was designed by Tise Design Associates of Newton and constructed by Groom Construction of Salem. BRIX is comprised of 61 residential units, ranging in size from 800sf to 1,700sf, with six of the units designated as affordable. Building amenities include a courtyard terrace, club room, pet spa, and fitness studio. The building also includes a two-level parking garage. It also features public art commissioned by Suzi Hlavacek and Boston Art in the form of murals painted on the exterior of one side of the building and a sculpture by local artist, Peter Cohen. BRIX is in walking distance to downtown and its shops, restaurants, and museums.
The project was jump-started in part by the Commonwealth’s Housing Development Incentive Program (HDIP), which provides gateway cities like Salem with a tool to increase residential growth, expand diversity of housing stock, and support economic development. BRIX was the first home-ownership project in Massachusetts to utilize the HDIP program.
