Somerville, MA – City Realty has completed construction for Broadway Residences, a transit-oriented development that will provide 18 units of rental housing along with ground-floor retail space in Greater Boston at the corner of Broadway and Mt. Pleasant streets.
The new community will offer its residents many local conveniences for shopping, dining, and easy access to public transportation and parks. Somerville-based Khalsa Design Inc. (KDI) is responsible for the design work, and Nauset Construction is the general contractor responsible for completing construction.
The new five-story building features 11 apartments, two retail spaces, a parking garage, and bike storage area where a blighted one-story retail structure previously stood. The apartments are comprised of two- and three-bedroom units (including some with balconies). The neighborhood is located in a bike-friendly area featuring flat streets with some bike lanes and is within a 3-minute walk to Sullivan Square Station, a major transportation hub.
The historic house, built in 1841, was moved a short distance on the site and placed onto a new foundation. A four-car garage was added to the rear of the home. Clapboard siding with wood-replicated trim clads the exterior façade of the home, and true divided light windows were replaced to retain the character of the period.
